Kate Sessions Pressed Plant Phone Case


More than a pretty pattern, the artwork on this phone case comes from pressed leaves that Kate Sessions, the so-called "Mother of Balboa Park," carefully dried and preserved in a small scrapbook. Given to Kate by her mother for her 15th birthday (in 1872), Kate continued to collect and press plants from many locations over time. The journal is now safely stored in our Research Library.

This biodegradable phone case was made with absolutely no plastic, but rather PLA plant polymer with a bamboo binder. The material won’t add to the landfill, and becomes biodegradable in just 160 days.

Available in several sizes, suitable for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro.
