Brikk, have announced the launch of their product line of high-end, pure gold and platinum cases for the iPhone 5. Called the Haven™, proceeds from the sale will fund Humanitarian Aid efforts.
Brikk’s “profit for philanthropy” model distribute proceeds to assist populations around the world suffering from hunger. For each iPhone 5 case 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. Brikk’s dream is simple: for other luxury brands to adopt a permanent “profit for philanthropy” model.
The new luxury iPhone 5 case collection launches with three models crafted from gold and one model from platinum for the luxury market. 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.
The Haven is handmade by some of the most skilled artisans in the world. 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; the platinum model features over 100 grams of platinum. Customized versions with diamonds and other precious stones are also available. Brikk designs and manufactures couture products and accessories for the technology, lifestyle, and fashion industries. The materials and processes utilized at Brikk are more commonly applied to scientific purposes such as space travel and exploration. Rarely, if ever, have they been used for the consumer market.
Targeted to the consumer seeking premium, luxury mobile phone accessories, the luxurious Haven cases are available directly from Brikk in Los Angeles or through their website. Additional product rollout in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo will follow.
