Three funky limited edition iPhone cases by QDOS

Here at girlgeekchic towers we are loving the new collection of stylish looking slip cases from QDOS.

The Quilted slip

For the iPhone, the quilted case is ideal for the fashion conscious iPhone owner, it feels very Chanel stylee, we like. It offers a slim tight fit for minimum bulk in the pocket. Made with a patent leather finish, this case uses a pull-tab system to provide quick and easy access to the iPhone.

The Cashmere mix sock

For iPhone & iPod Touch, this is a slim fitting, hand finished protective case. It is made from a cashmere-mix cable knit and comes in a single pack of three colours; cream, grey and black. The Cashmere mix knit feels so nice and will easily fit into any pocket or bag and still provide protection against bumps, knocks and dust.

The Ski slip case

For iPhone & iPod Touch and made from hand finished natural sheepskin, this case is just SO cute and fluffy, like a sheepskin mitten for your beloved iPhone. It also offers protection from scratches and scuffs in the pocket.

Cases from £19.99 available at  www.qdossound.com
