Gracilis iPhone Case


We paid a lot of attention to the lines of this case, to achieve a minimal case that didn’t add bulk to the svelte iPhone, while still providing protection against everyday bumps. Protected by approximately 1.8mm on all sides by Horween leather, the laser cut, hand-stitched case is a tight fit that won’t add bulk, but provides unobstructed access to all ports/screen/plugs/buttons.

Available for iPhone 7/7 Plus, 8/8 Plus, and the 2020 iPhone SE.

“How do I know which color is which??” Select a leather color from the drop down menus below, and the photos will update to reflect your choice.

Check the Shipping Information page for our time to hand-craft your order and shipping options, and our pretty damn liberal return policy, in case the goods don’t work out for you.

Upload an image/logo for engraving: (+$12.00)

Black & white or (limited) greyscale image, tiff/jpeg/png or vector file. Very limited greyscale (black, medium grey, light grey, white) is possible. Actual engraving dimensions are preferred @ 300dpi for best results-contact us with questions and we can help you know if your image will engrave well. We will review file and contact you with questions and pricing prior to beginning work. Include approximate image location you prefer in ‘special instructions’ box below. Please do not request engraving of images/logos that you do not have rights to for copyright/trademark purposes.

(max file size 2 GB)

Using a clean piece of unlined white paper (computer paper), hand write your message with a black pen–preferably even a sharpie so it will engrave nice and thick, then take a well lit photo of it with your phone and upload it here. Don’t worry if it’s crooked or you need to cross out a word and re-write it, we can adjust it all in photoshop. We’ll tweak as needed to make it engrave well and contact you prior to making to finalize location.

Gift Message OR Special Instructions

If you’d prefer a (Twitter-sized) gift message to the recipient, instead of our typical thank-you note to the purchaser, let us know what you’d like on the card. You can also include any special instructions we may have asked you for if you chatted with us via email/messenger so we can make sure your order is perfect. Or, tell us what bourbon we really need to check out, or your favorite meme format…you’ve got 420 characters, go wild.

Exquisite & Impeccable

From the selecting and ordering of my Gracilis iPhone 7 case through the packaging and on to the follow up....outstanding. And the product? Beyond expectations. Keeps my phone small and looks great. This is the Jim Dale of phone cases!

My husband loved it. Thank

My husband loved it. Thank you so much.

the perfect iPhone case

I've had my Gracilis for just over a year now and its broken in so well. I still get compliments on it while out in public. The leather is rich and soft and the stitching is just as strong as the day I received it. Craftsmanship like this is what keeps me coming back to FFF time and time again.

love it...and the sidestep and architect wallets are lookin' nice and worn in. thanks for the love, dude!

Love this product and the people behind it. Thanks


I love my phone case; it is the envy of my peers. Can't wait to tell more of my friends about it!

Great customer service

Had a minor issue with a splotch of leather not holding the dye on my black Gracilis - just an unlucky piece. Shawn immediately offered to replace the case and did so graciously after I tried a little black polish. Thanks FFF for great design and excellent service!
