Phone Skins

Finally, our iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S/5C (it is getting hard to keep up) wood, laser cut skins have arrived. Find them here.

  • Free screen protector included with cover
  • Slim profile to minimize bulk
  • Surface protection and enhanced grip
  • Easily removable and reusable
  • Peel and stick adhesive back
*Because we use real wood, the grain patterns will vary, making each skin unique

A little background..

The wood for each skin is hand selected, all sanding, finishing and packaging is completed in Lazerwood’s Seattle based studio.  All of the skins end up being unique, and as seen in the photos, these skins age beautifully over time. We have had our on our iPhone 4 for about 9 months now, and you see from the photo below, it has evolved and become a totally different piece of art to adorn the rear of your phone with from what it first looked like.  For a limited time, we are selling a few of these in our store, the remaining stock is being sold locally and also given as gifts. If you have any questions about these skins, just let us know.

BAJA CALIFORNIA

Dr. Chris Foster has a project, and its more interesting than Where’s My Hippo. It is called PlanetEarthQuest.com.

Having said that, we’re lucky to be friends with the man who has traveled to every corner of the world on his motorcycle. Further, he’s brought Herbert along on many of those journeys. Our friendship is based on a mutual admiration for adventure and travel, which is a foundation of our search at Where’s My Hippo.

Anyways, look at this map, its about 1,050+ miles, ONE WAY.

Early Summer Lookbook & Release

The things that we do inspire the things that we make. From the shirts, to the photos, to the videos and the blog posts, we try to bring a slice of our life into every part of Where’s My Hippo.

Enjoy the shots below and check out the new products available from our Early Summer release in the store.

The photos below were shot all around Los Angeles, some in the Venice Canals, others at several skate plazas in North Hollywood and East Los Angeles.

In terms of the shirts, they are simple and different from our previous designs. They are printed on Alternative Apparel as opposed to American Apparel, we wanted better quality and we wanted it to last through multiple wash cycles.

As usual, follow along on Instagram for more updates, and if you have any questions or comments, hit us up there as well.

Finally, be sure to check out the video we put together of our adventures through Los Angeles and San Diego in preparation of this release.
