To a loyal Apple fan, Friday might as well have been a holiday—it was the release day of the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. But the more important question remains: What case do I want? As an accessories editor, I know there is a smorgasbord of options out there, but personally, there’s nothing like supporting an all-American brand. When it comes to tech cases, I’m loving the San Francisco-based brand DODOcase. They use a former bookbinding factory and traditional sewing techniques to make unique, special cases for both iPhones and iPads. It’s the perfect marriage between traditional artisanal craftsmanship (that’s practically extinct) and today’s super-slick technologies. DODOcase has a bevy of options to choose from. Or, you can follow my lead and “build-a-DODO” to customize one for your very own. And in case you’re wondering, President Obama and Jay Z both already have custom-made DODOcases!
