Mujjo Full Leather Case: Beautiful iPhone Protection

Mujjo Full Leather Case Glamour Shot

Your iPhone 12 may not need a case or screen protector, but many iPhone owners make it a habit of protecting their investment with a case. Netherlands-based case designer Mujjo makes leather iPhone cases that are stunningly beautiful as well as functional. Today I take a look at the Full Leather Case for iPhone 12 Pro Max ($49.90)

The Subtle Design of the Mujjo Full Leather Case

In my opinion, less is more in terms of iPhone cases. I’ve reviewed hundreds of cases over the years, some of which become almost comical in terms of their design. Many are big, bulky plastic monsters that are difficult to hold. Of course, they can allegedly protect your phone from hundred-foot falls and hours of submersion…

Mujjo does one thing very well. They make iPhone cases out of leather. Those cases offer protection for both the back and front of the iPhone through raised bezels that keep the camera lenses and screen safe during a fall onto a flat surface.

Top-Quality Materials and Craftsmanship

Over the past three years, each of my personal iPhones has been protected by a Mujjo Full Leather Case. Unlike many iPhone cases, they don’t detract from the design of the smartphone. Just the opposite: they add to the good looks of Apple’s smartphones.

With a Mujjo Full Leather Case, the iPhone is encased in top-quality leather without adding bulk. The inside has a microfiber lining to swaddle your phone, and even the buttons are covered in leather (see image above).

The case looks great and feels “right” in your hand. The leather ages gracefully — my previous Mujjo cases have looked just as good as they did the first day, even with a few scratches.

Choices for the Mujjo Full Leather Case

Mujjo offers the Full Leather Case for the full iPhone 12 line: iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. For many of the cases there is a choice of tan, black, Monaco Blue and Slate Green leather finishes.

Want to carry less in your pockets? The company also offers wallet cases as an alternative. While the wallet cases don’t replace a full wallet, they’re perfect for those situations where you just need a credit card or two and an ID.

iPhone 11 owners aren’t left out of the fun, as Mujjo makes the Full Leather Case and wallet cases for the iPhone 11 line as well.
