Now you can Skype in style! This is the world’s first VoIP phone made of wood! Two years ago HULGER launched the ZIRICOTE concept design made from an African wood to huge acclaim and this month they debuted the finished PAPPA phone, with a design more suited to production.

I meant to post about this earlier, I got my Cheetah print from Ryan Berkley!

I noticed some new prints went up this month as well! Take a look at them below!
