Lust List: Ullu’s Exotic Leather Bands for Apple Watch

Among the types of leather you can find at ullu are Italian calf’s leather; ostrich, ethically sourced from South Africa; and stingray, ethically sourced from Thailand.

If you’re not opposed to sporting animal hide, the story of stingray leather might be of interest. Ullu writes on its blog that Samurai warriors used stingray leather on the hilts of their swords because it did not get slick when covered with the blood of the enemy. Tales aside, stingray is one of the most precious leathers on the market. This luxe and highly-resistant material is expertly handcrafted to give the bands a brilliantly shiny, pearly effect.

As far as exotic skins go, ostrich leather is a gold standard for its unique, bumpy texture and durability. As each animal hide is different, so is each and every handcrafted ullu strap.

And, off course, a fine piece of Italian cowhide with the ullu treatment can add a rich look to your Apple Watch. The company offers its premium leather and hand-colored leather bands for $99 in beautiful, rich hues.

Really nice case for my iPhone 12

This case looks and feels great -- and it fits the phone perfectly! It seems to give really good protection to the edges and corners. As another reviewer noted, the bottom is left open for the speakers and charging port....I don't see this as an issue, but your milage may vary.

I usually just carry my ID in the back pouch, but I think I could get a couple of credit cards in there, too. Overall, this is a pretty darned nice case for my phone.

Nice!

This is a birthday gift for my daughter who has an Apple Watch. I haven't given it to her yet since it's 4 months away (and I don't own one so I can't attest to how it fits) but it's really well made and looks terrific. She's an Apple-holic like me so I know she'll love it.

Looks like real MOP

The case is pretty, light weight and semi-flexible and has the visual depth, shine and appearance of real, black MOP. What you see in the picture is what you get in real life. It’s good looking, sophisticated and perfectly compliments my black iPhone 12 mini. I also like that it is a one piece design and that the edges of the case are slightly elevated around the face and camera openings so that you get a tiny bit of bumper protection (without the bulk of an actual secondary outer rim bumper) in case you drop it. I also like that it has a shiny finish so that, while it’s not “slippery,” it still slips in and out of my purse or pocket easily enough without dragging against any of my stuff that has a cotton lining, like some of the rubber or silicone cases tend to do. I don’t feel like I have to fight with it to get it into or out of a small space. Overall good looking, functional phone case. I like it!

Easy to hold.

I can finally stop fumbling with my remote. I also know which end is up now. I also feel as though it is a little bit protected from spills etc. I’ve lost one remote because water ran underneath it after it’s spilled on the table.
