Chet Malinow x Rustek Inlay iPhone XR Case

Precision Handcrafted, Naturally Unique

We teamed up with local Portland artist Chet Malinow to create these mind bending cases featuring his signature style, created from Sapele and Maple veneer graphics, precisely hand inlaid and finished to be unlike any other. Coupled with an ultra thin, shock absorbent rubber enclosure with integrated buttons and easy access to the charging port and headphone jack our cases make your phone feel more natural in your hands. Our wood graphics are bonded together with a high strength epoxy and hand finished, retaining a smooth, real wood feel that will never chip, crack or peel. We create Google Pixel Cases, iPhone cases, and Samsung cases. Satisfaction guaranteed, love it or let us know.

Tons of compliments

Love this case. It’s unique but classic and neutral. Matches all my outfits and even my apartment lol. Highly recommend

Only phone case I’ve ever truly loved.

Rustek cases tick a lot of boxes for me:
✓Handmade in US of A (and the best state no less)
✓Design collab’ with rad Portland-based artist
✓Eco-conscious packaging and company
✓Bulletproof! (My last Rustek outlived the phone itself)
✓Feels great in the hand. To me, wood feels more “natural” to hold for extended periods of time/interact with frequently; like a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
✓New and improved raised sleep/wake button.
✓Wood acquires a nice patina over time
✓Quality glue. No splitting.
✓Doesn’t add a ton of extra bulk to the phone
✓Warm and fuzzies when you support a local (or US-based), small business.

This is now my second Rustek. If they keep making 'em, I’ll keep buying 'em.

Love Everything

Custom statement piece with a mission! Beautiful and strong case. Absolutely love everything about Rustek!

Always love these phone cases!

The case looks great & gives that extra layer of classiness that puts you above the rest. And, if the years of owning my last Rustek case are any indicator, it will last a long time.

Excellent quality.

Very nice! Appreciate the artisan affiliation. Adds a touch of class to phone and protects quite well.
