Apple pulls vegan-friendly FineWoven cases

It was falling to bits faster than the phones

Fruit-themed cargo cult Apple has pulled production of its FineWoven accessories because they were causing a crisis of faith among its followers because they were so alarmingly bad.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Apple leaker and prototype collector known as “Kosutami.” explained that Apple has stopped production of FineWoven accessories due to its poor durability. The company may move to another non-leather material for its premium accessories.

Apple stopped selling leather accessories in September last year, replacing them with a more environmentally friendly “FineWoven” material that the company describes as “luxurious and durable microtwill” made from 68% post-consumer recycled polyester. FineWoven iPhone cases are priced at $59, MagSafe Wallets at $59, AirTag holders at $35, and Apple Watch bands at $99.

Accessories made of the material have been very poorly received by non-vegan customers, who thought they were a “bit crap” due to their “poor durability and disappointing quality.” Odd we would have thought it would been perfect for an iPhone.

 FineWoven accessories in new colour options were absent from Apple’s spring refresh. If Apple has indeed stopped production of FineWoven accessories, it may be some time before the company’s existing stock inventory begins to deplete or just rot on the shelves noticeably.
