Distil Union Elegantly Combines Wallet and Case with Wally Case for iPhone

Distil Union

Distil Union, the Charleston-based collective of product designers, now offers their Wally stick-on leather wallet in a new snap-on case version for iPhone. Wally Case provides all the functionality of Wally's discreet and minimal pull-tab wallet, plus the added protection of a strong, slim shell.

"Think of Wally Case as the original Wally's protective big brother," explained Nate Justiss, industrial designer at Distil Union. "Wally Case comes from the same family of premium materials and perfectly shelters your iPhone 5 with its added protection."

Made of solid polycarbonate (the same thing race car windshields are made of) combined with premium Argentinean leather, Wally Case delivers the attention to detail that only the originators of Wally can achieve. Wally Case makes iPhone more comfortable to hold and wears beautifully over time, just like that old wallet he replaces. Wally Case easily minimizes the daily carry: Simply snap Wally Case onto iPhone to say goodbye to bulky wallets and experience this patent-pending case with a secret, designerly twist.

Wally Case's integrated leather pocket accommodates folded cash and three most-used cards. What makes Wally Case special is the pull-tab action that cleverly keeps everything hidden out of sight: Simply pull the ribbon to access cards, then push them back in to conceal them. Wally Case offers true convenience, protection and simplicity for the daily grab-and-go.

Already over halfway towards the crowd-funding goal, Wally Case can be pre-ordered exclusively on for $40 (includes free shipping in the US). Wally Case is available for iPhone 5 in an array colors to be revealed during the Kickstarter campaign. After Kickstarter, Wally Case will be available at for $49.99, so those who embrace crowd-funding will be among the first to get Wally Case and simplify their life – for less!
