Targeted to the consumer seeking premium, luxury mobile phone accessories, Brikk’s iPhone 5 case, called the Haven, is a collection of pure gold and platinum cases handmade by some of the most skilled artisans in the world.
The Haven is available in solid pink gold, yellow gold or platinum and ranges from $11,610-14,235. Each Haven sold will fund one metric ton of rice distributed by various NGOs, says Brikk. As it is made of solid gold or platinum its color and finish does not wear-off as with other plated cases and iPhones on the market. Each gold model features over 75 grams of gold, while the platinum model features over 100 grams of platinum. Customized versions with diamonds and other precious stones are also available.
According to Brikk, a maker of fine philanthropic goods, for each product sold, a specific amount of rice is allocated and distributed to those in need through select NGOs to areas in need such as Somalia and the Sahel.
