Cover for the FP3

Shameless copy from the German topic, just follow the links …

And via Etsy there still seem to be some colours of the leather case in stock right now …

Review of Anna Treurniet’s FP3 cover.

I’ve been using the case for 2 days now. Here are my initial findings.


  • Absolutely not slippery. It won’t slip out of your pocket or hands.
  • Everything fits, if you don’t mind looking on the mm precise.
  • Available today.
  • Made within 2 business days, received 4 business days after payment.
  • Indy designer.
  • Minor, obfuscated branding.
  • Vegan case.
  • Magnet clasp.
  • Place for a plastic card (case blocked my OV chipkaart’s NFC when I tried)
  • Bumper still fits.
  • Power button, volume buttons usable while case closed if you learn to aim (I suppose you could even mark the spots on the case).
  • Good communication with designer.


  • I don’t like seeing the white on the black (see pictures)
  • You can see it is handmade (minor artifacts with e.g. stitching)
  • At 67 EUR I find it on the expensive side (though S&H was free within The Netherlands)

All in all, I’m happy with the case.

Update 8 Dec: finally managed to borrow my partner’s Pixel 3A to make some pictures!

Photos taken after case has been in use for 1-2 weeks.

(Sorry for the bad quality of photos :smiley: )

EDIT: 24 Jan 2020: the top right corner on the back (near the camera) is losing its form. I had to use some glue to attach it to the case. I’m using hobby glue because I want to be able to detach the case e.g. to remove SIM or battery or repair phone.


While a vegan option is always nice to have, in my opinion it deserves a mention how this is achieved, too (I suppose everybody knows what leather is with its implications).

Wikipedia has an article about
Piñatex, the material used for the cover, and the article has a section on sustainability … (Spoiler: Not looking pretty, if you read the whole thing.) …

So, I think it’s a bit pick your poison in the case of leather vs. Piñatex.

(Interesting article edit there, by the way, yesterday.)


That animal rights and climate / sustainability are at odds, does not surprise me. I’ve come across that conundrum regularly.

I needed something to protect my screen. I already almost dropped my FP3. Which wouldn’t have been good for the environment either. Nor my wallet.

Byproduct of petroleum is actually a good thing, as it is a byproduct of something widely in use. Using something of plastic for 3-5 years is adequate.

The changelog includes also:

Included full disclosure of the ingredients, a sustainability section, and reputable references to support the new content. Deleted ‘vegan’ from the properties because this is not a factual property of the material, and controversial when considering the full lifecycle of it.

You can take veganism as extreme as you want it to.


Just a heads up that I (finally) added the pictures to that post.


HI there,
I would be happy about more tips and hints for other fp3 book style covers.

Is there a more popular device with the same measurements available to be able to choose for those vocers?

Anna Treurniet’s FP3 cover seems to be the only one so far?

Best regards

Well, not exactly.
At least a search on “amazon (de)” or on “amazon (uk)” for example brings quite a few results - that you regularly can shop somewhere else of course.
Here are some examples:

Be aware, however, that most of what’s available currently at the bigger shopping platforms are generic cases meant to fit a range of different smartphones with similar measurements. They should fit in general, but don’t expect them to fit perfectly like they were tailor-made for the Fairphone 3.


Though this topic is kind of old, the title fits for this posting in another thread:

Linking to:

They do offer wooden covers for the FP3(+) and come at 599 SEK (around 59 Euro). And they state:

We have chosen to buy timber from small farms and “Plockhugget”, an organization that instead of creating clear-cuts gently cuts by thinning out trees, which helps the forest to maintain a functioning ecosystem.

So it really seems to be fitting the Fairphone in my opinion.

Thanks to @Alis for sharing this link!! :+1:


I’ve been using one of Anna Treurniet’s FP3 leather cases for about two weeks, and I’m very very satisfied with it. Like many others, I spent quite a while trawling the internet for a suitable case. If you need to open the phone, the rear cover stays attached to the case, so that’s not a problem. You also get an extra piece of adhesive in case you need to remove the back cover sometime.
There is one slit on the back of the cover for credit cards etc.
As for Look and Feel, it’s feels extremely robust (which it is) and looks handmade (I mean that in the positive sense). It’s not cheap at 67 euros, but it’s not meant to last two years or so…
Regards, Colm

It was a looooong journey to get the cases for our FP3s for my boys…

requirements: as transparent as possible, removable, as slim as possible - to fit into trouser’s bag and enable the swap of the pictures on the background.

but we got it and i’m so proud of it! thanks a lot to

best regards

Thank you very much yvmuell. Did not know the list existed. Tried to edit the text but could not get the hyperlink working well. Maybe you could edit that one if you will?
Have a good day

I corrected the eby link. Just wondering about this very old from 2014 3D printing blog, as this is not for the FP3 (at least not sepcifically)?

I posted a few additional links but it does not seem to work well. I have deleted the 3D link. Is indeed old news. Would you be so kind to edit the links. I just can’t seem to get them to work.

I corrected them. Just wondering if you tested any of those and you know they really fit (like the cheap TPU case shippping from china or the low budget leather case, where the pictures def do not show a FP3, ie. camera e.g. would not fit?
