<i>raden</i> by Takaoka Shikki

Ancient decorative art on a polycarbonate iPhone5/5s skin

In a superb combination of ancient and modern technology, the highly refined, traditional art of Raden* is paired with the uber cool looks of the iPhone5/5s. The enchanting iridescent lining of the abalone shell is used to beautifully decorate each polycarbonate skin before being finished in a hard-wearing polyurethane coating. These gorgeous, protective cases allow easy access to all ports and function buttons, and have a thin cushioning layer of velour on the inside to prevent scratches to the iPhone. As it is harvested from nature, no two Raden finishes are exactly the same making each case a unique work of art. Snap your iPhone5/5s into a timeless piece of ancient Japanese culture that is, of course, a perfect fit.

*Raden

Originating in the Nara Period (710-794), Raden (sometimes known as ‘japaning’) is an ancient decorative craft whereby the iridescent linings of shells such as mother-of-pearl, abalone and ivory are set into the surfaces of wood, metal, etc. Raden is often combined with the delicately beautiful maki-e techniques, and gold and silver leafing to create pieces of exquisite art.
