WAYLAND, Massachusetts, November 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Vers extends its line of sustainably built, hand-crafted wood cases for iPod and iPhone with the addition of open-front Shellcases that allow full display access. Combining the natural beauty and strength of Walnut, Cherry and Bamboo, they are the most environmentally thoughtful cases available on the market.

The new Shellcase offers a wood case solution to those who prefer to have their iPod touch or iPhone fully protected AND 100% accessible, says David Laituri, designer and co-founder of Vers. We're big believers in hand-crafted wood; it has a wonderful look and feel - each one is unique. It's surprisingly tough as well, particularly Bamboo, tougher than plastic. It looks great, offers superior protection and is the most renewable resource on the planet.

The response to our wood case launch was very positive, but many of our customers wanted full access to their iPhone while in the case. With the new Shellcase, they've got it, says Vers co-founder Tim Trzepacz. Like the Vers 2X and Vers 1.5R, Vers cases are designed with the same passion for sustainability; for each tree used in Vers case production, 100 are re-planted through our partnership with The Arbor Day Foundation and the U.S. Forestry Service to re-forest parklands damaged by fire and other natural disasters. We're excited to offer a product that goes well beyond achieving sustainability to actually helping to restore the environment.

Vers wood cases for iPhone, iPod touch and iPod classic cases are MSRP US$39.99; US$34.99 for iPod nano cases. They are offered in Cherry, Walnut and Bamboo.

The Vers hand-crafted wood iPod sound system and accessory brand was founded in 2007. The company's first sound systems, the Vers 2X and Vers 1.5R, are distributed in twenty-seven countries worldwide. Vers is committed to making beautiful, high quality sound systems and accessories that are more 'green' from beginning to end.
