Sled Handmade Wood and Leather iPhone Backs

Sled

Sled is a company out of Boston, Massachusetts and Brooklyn, New York that crafts handmade leather and wood products into classic and distinctive accessories using natural materials.

Their flagship product, the Runner, is a cowhide and birch wood back housing bezel that completely replaces the glass back of the iPhone 4 and 4S.

It works with both Verizon/CDMA and AT&T/GSM, and adds an unmistakable warmth and unique character to your phone.

Ferrari Gets A Tattoo

Tattooed Ferrari

What you see here is a Ferrari F430 that has been covered in cowhide and then tattooed by French artist Phillipe Pasqua.

It sounds ridiculous, but the end result is rather impressive, so I’m sure this isn’t the last time we see a leather covered supercar prowling the streets.

Bull Cab

How do you get the attention of a New Yorker? Cover their ubiquitous taxi in fake brown and white cowhide and put a set of bull horns on top of it. The cabs were created to advertise for a two-day Invitational Bull Riders event, and I’m guessing they served their purpose. Though the fares were cheap, most cab rides only lasted about six seconds.
