Reviews & Testimonials

"It's beautiful and unique and actually protects my phone! Love that it comes in plastic-free and recycled paper packaging too. They really thought of everything. " —Semma S., Verified Customer


Believe in Better

There are now more mobile devices than there are people on earth and this year saw the billionth iPhone sold—in less than a decade. That's not just a lot of phones out there, that's a staggering amount of plastic phone accessories (and packaging) being consumed and disposed of at an alarming rate.

At Pela, we believe small choices add up to make a big difference, even as small as your phone case. Let's lead the way towards an eco-friendly, sustainable future.

What are Pela Cases made of?

Pela Cases are made from our proprietary formula, Flaxstic™. Flaxstic consists of annually renewable ‘waste’ fibre from flax seed crops combined with plant-based biopolymer and recycled materials. The biopolymer has been tested by NSF International to be safe from phthalates, BPA, cadmium and lead. The biopolymers use are biodegradable and meet U.S. (ASTM D6400-04) and E.U. (EN 13432) standards for composting in an industrial composting facility. The unique material also has a lower carbon footprint and lower greenhouse gas emissions than traditional plastic.

Where are Pela Cases made?

Pela Cases are designed and manufactured in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Proudly Canadian!

Why flax straw?

Flax straw fibre and straw have unique strength and shock absorbing qualities which help to add strength to biopolymers. The flax fibres also give the material a unique appearance, which helps to spread awareness about sustainable bioplastics.

Is the Pela Case an 'impact' case?

Flax fibre and shive have natural shock absorbing qualities that will allow the Pela Case to function just as well, if not better, than similar soft cases made out of conventional plastic. The Pela Case is not designed to survive major abuse; however, it is perfect for protecting your smartphone from scratches, and everyday wear and tear and the odd drop.

Can Pela Case engrave my logo on the case?

Absolutely! We work with companies to customize the Pela Case so you can give them away as a Corporate Gift or promotional item. After all, don’t we all have enough pens and coffee mugs? Email for questions and details.

Will my Pela Case begin to biodegrade while I am using it?

The biopolymer we use was developed so your Pela Case will biodegrade in an industrial compost facility or in a back yard composter, but not in your pocket. We have not had a Pela Case begin to biodegrade outside of a composing environment. But if your case does begin to break down within one year of purchase, please send it back to us and we will happily send you a new Pela Case free of charge.
