A NOTE FROM THE ALTO BROTHERS
A Note From The Alto Brothers:
We love working with wood! This passion for woodworking has culminated in a business where we focus on creating functional wood products that enhance your everyday life in ways you would never have thought. We handpick all our woods from local lumberyards and mill it to exacting specifications to create unbelievably intricate, heirloom quality designs.
But don't let this fool you, durability is our #1 focus. We design all our products to withstand an incredible amount of abuse. Because what's the point of buying something that won't last?
Our vision for Alto Collective from day 1 has been 'Escape Average' - We have carved out a niche by making remarkable wood products, and we hope you enjoy using this unique wood phone case for years to come.
Though raw wood is easier to use and faster to process, its long-term durability is poor. The first drop of water or smudge of dirt will cause discoloration that will forever be embedded in the wood. Raw unfinished woods also have the chance of splintering and expanding with changing weather conditions.
WE ARE DIFFERENT
We have designed our cases to stand up to a considerable amount of stress. Each case gets a special finish to bring out the beauty and 3-dimensional depth of the real wood.We hand-seal the carefully selected wood on our smartphone cases with multiple coats of scratch-resistant and UV-stabilized finish. This multi-step process takes place over multiple days to further strengthen the wood.
We don’t cut corners.
We do all this work because it makes a better product, and we refuse to sacrifice quality in order to speed up production times.
A seamless high-impact rubber bumper protects all sides, corners, and keeps your phone safe from everyday drops and falls. We have designed our custom wood phone cases with extra grip added along the sides ensuring an ergonomic feel in your hands that keeps you in complete control of your new ultra-slim device.
Will screen protectors work with your cases?
Yes they will.
Many of our cases have a small raised front lip which allows for lay-on-table protection and drop protection, however if you regularly carry your phone in a pocket or purse with keys or coins, it might be a good idea to protect your screen from the small scratches these could cause.
Our cases are designed to keep your phone as slim as possible while still being protected from everyday bumps and drops.
Are your cases water-proof?
Our wood phone cases are water resistant and will absolutely survive a prolonged dunk in water. Your phone however, might not if it was made before 2017. Good news if you bought a phone after 2016, almost all newer phones have a water and dust rating of IP67 or higher.
Are your cases scratch proof?
Our cases are not immune to scratches, however even with heavy use, we doubt you will ever notice a scratch. We use an eco-friendly industrial strength finish on our cases that makes them very scratch resistant. If you take reasonable care of your phone case, it will look and feel brand new for years.
How do I clean my phone case?
The premium wood on your phone case is water resistant, so a good rub down with soap and water or any floor cleaner will do the job of cleaning any dirt or debris off your custom smartphone case.

Alto Collective was founded in Calgary, Alberta by brothers Owen and Kevin.
Combining their technical degrees of Engineering and Applied Sciences with artisan woodworking techniques passed down from their great grandfather, they started designing and creating products that excel in both form and function. Truly a homegrown venture, Alto Collective launched by attending local pop-up markets and shortly thereafter transitioned to opening up shop online so products could be available year-round to customers both local and beyond. Still owned and operated fulltime by Kevin and Owen, the business now runs out of both Alberta and British Columbia locations.
