The “Black Suede” KardShark Phone Grip Wallet is made with artificial leather. No animals were harmed in the making of this product though we cannot guarantee what we ate for lunch on the day of manufacture. Pleather gives us an advantage that animal based leather suede does not give us, namely stretch. The KardShark stretches to accommodate a few more cards and cash when you need it and springs back to position when you are carrying the bare essentials. This KardShark is solid black and makes a perfect classy fashion statement for yourself or as a gift for others. If your phone is black this phone grip wallet will blend right in. The No Drop Grip will give you a secure grip on your phone and give you the ability to have some cards and cash next to your phone at all times.
