We created Novada in 2015, after spending many years trying to find the perfect leather iPhone case made to the quality and design we liked. After much searching we set about designing and producing our own cases and Novada was born.
We are a husband and wife team, based on the foothills of the South Downs in West Sussex in the UK.
The name Novada comes from letters of our family’s names; Neven, Otto, Veronica & Ada.
Living & working next to the South Downs National Park, we take our environmental impact very seriously and make every effort to lower our carbon footprint.
We continue to make changes to our business to reduce the amount of recycling we cause and the carbon footprint from shipping and manfacturing.
Our packaging is now made from 100% recyclable bleach free kraft paper and contains zero plastic.
The same size box is used for all our cases to further reduce waste.
Our old packaging weighed 40 grams which included 17 grams of single use plastic. The new packaging weighs just 19 grams.
This has halved our recycling impact when packaging is discarded by our customers.
Our cases are manufactured on the outskirts of Guangzhou, China in a small artisan workshop run by a Master Leather Craftsman and his team.
Our leather is now sourced from a local tannery and not imported into China from the USA or Europe.
This has dramatically reduced the amount of miles our leather travels and its carbon footprint.
Shipping & Freight
Previously our cases were packaged and freighted from China. We now freight our flat-packed packaging separately from our cases.
We now package our cases in the UK. By doing this we have halved the amount of freight space and carbon footprint caused by shipping.
