Twelve South has introduced SurfacePad for iPhone, a cover for the smartphone crafted from a credit card-thin layer of Napa leather that weighs less than an ounce.

SurfacePad is an ultra-thin, luxury leather cover that shields iPhone 5 or 4/4S from the more typical hazards of life, like the change in your pocket, jump drive in your backpack or the nail file in your purse. It allows you to set your iPhone down on rough spots like a concrete bench or stone tabletop without worrying about scratching the sleek surface of your iPhone.

SurfacePad for iPhone attaches to the phone using a special adhesive as the which leaves zero residue behind when removed. It also features a built-in display stand that is sewn into the back of the cover, allowing the cover to flex just enough to prop up the iPhone horizontally.

“There are many iPhone owners who wouldn’t be caught dead with their iPhone in a thick, oversized plastic case,” said Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South. “So, just as we did with BookBook for iPhone, we’re inventing a whole new category of covers. SurfacePad is a gorgeous layer of luxury leather that shields and enhances the look and feel of iPhone. With SurfacePad covering iPhone, there’s still no doubt you’re holding an iPhone. Just don’t call it a case… call it a SurfacePad.”

The SurfacePad cover is made with premium Napa leather, does not interfere with any of the iPhone's buttons, ports or camera, is less than 1/10th of an inch (1.7mm) thick, and weighs less than one ounce (25 grams). The smooth leather cover is backed by a soft microfiber to protect the iPhone screen.

SurfacePad for iPhone is available for $34.99 in Pop Red, Modern White and Jet Black for iPhone 5 and 4/4S.

Their video is about people with makeup or about the stupid paperweight?

It's like a bikini, this is not a cover. Phone drops and this bikini and the iPhone will go into small peaces. Waste of money what I would call it
