OFr Design Using Natural Elegance to Save the Planet

Posted: Updated:

June 18, 2014. France. Your friends may be saying, “Oh-la-la” when they see the new iPhone or iPad cases – but you’ll know that there’s loads of substance behind the earth-friendly good looks.

Elegant and distinctive these new wooden iPad (iPad 2/3/4/Air) and iPhone cases are made in France using naturally beautiful and environmentally friendly bamboo. With a flair for the extraordinary, O’Fr Design is designing these special yet practical works of art that let the natural beauty shine through in their simple elegance. The cases are feather light for portability and have a chic vegetable tanned leather strap available in multiple colours for a look all your own. Check out their global crowd funding site on Indiegogo to learn about the ethos and style behind these made in France forest-friendly cases.

Working with passion for design – the O’Fr line can customize for any clients’ needs. A small investment can reap many rewards both personally and professionally. In fact, one of France’s prestigious Chateaus in the infamous Bordeaux wine making region is supporting the project because, as they explain on the site video, “…we were seduced by the O’Fr line and its values – the respect for nature.” The quality and commitment to natural preservation is evident. With day-to-day functionality the French craftsmanship melds with a new vision for product development. The products are built with passion and are turning heads in this ‘green friendly’ global community. The campaigners have also committed support to the Association “Coeur de Fort” which is supporting reforestation in villages in Peru. Regardless of the campaign outcome O’Fr has committed to reforest a plot in a village in Peru with 250+ trees. Now, the designers have turned this Indiegogo campaign to raise $25,000 to bring both the beautiful products and strong ethos to market.

They have the proven skill and artistic passion and dedication – but need your help bringing this product to market internationally. Apart from saving trees and feeling good about having a unique item that is as practical as it is beautiful, there are many perks for even small contributions to the crowd sourced funding O’Fr campaign. Perks start at just $10 and come with a huge ‘thank you’ and “merci beaucoup.” For $25 you can get a ‘trendy’ perk with a special eco-friendly bamboo/recycled Aluminum pen.

Need to get your hands on your very own case ASAP? For $250 USD you can have your own O’Fr bamboo case (caramel or natural colour choice) and the chic O’Fr cotton cap perfect for any sporty activities (or weekend getaway) in the great outdoors. Order one for you – or for everyone in your company to make a statement.
