    It does happen periodically on mine. Difficult to replicate though. It's not an issue although I have found also that the four corners of the cover are fraying a bit:

    It's leather. It is bound to happen.

    The sides of mine are doing that also because of holding it when it is folded back over.

    If that is happening after only one week it is poorly made. I have a case for my eReader like that and after 2 years it just started fraying, and I lean the eReader on the corners while reading.

    I have a leather wallet with similar thin edges that's 1 year old and no fraying at all. 35 sterling (for me) isn't a cheap case and I don't believe I'm rough with it so after only 1 week I am a little disappointed. I'll monitor it and if no extra damage happens I can live with it.

    It's always good to let them know.
    They can reinforce the future product and they may offer to do so for you. easy to send them photos of the problem.

    Anyone notices that the Stilgut case look exactly the same as the Tetded case? The only difference is the brand names on the inside.
    They are both from Hongkong and I guess both come out from a factory in Guangdong in China.
    Wearing off after one week tells a lot about quality. My Piel Frama case is 5 years and suffers nothing like that.

    Now that I looked at it it seems that my case isn't seeing that wear and I have been pretty rough with it this past week.

    Stilgut is made in Germany not Hong Kong!

    You must have a case that kind of slipped quality control! May leather case after 3 weeks of heavy use is still fine!

    Thanks mate, for pointing that out.
    Thought I read from one of the posters on this forum that he was waiting for his Stilgut case (at time of his posting) to be sent over from HongKong and made my assumption from there.

    I've checked their website and they say they are based out of Berlin but their packaging says PRC (people's republic of China). I don't know what to believe!

    The PRC is below the bar code besides the recycle logo left side of the box

    Well, that is no surprise.
    At least it is clearly stated there.
    I've noticed that since the last couples of years, lots of stuff in Germany only label as Design in Germany and not Made in which country. I often ask for the manufacturing origins and hardly ever got a straight answer but often the kind of understanding look.

    Does anyone has both cases in hand (Stilgut and Tetded)? Any difference on build, quality and whatsoever? I've had confirmed I can get Tetded easier and cheaper than Stilgut online ($31 + $7 shipping). Aside from that Tetded is on sale!

    Apart from the branding, the Tedted and Stilgut cases look exactly the same to me and I suspect they come out of the same factory. Great value for money though especially if you can use one of the discount codes from their website.

    Thanks for this thread. Work is switching carriers in about a week or two, so a new Passport will be on it's way.

    Being as impatient as I am, I need a case ready for when the device is handed to me by IT. These Stilgut cases look amazing. Beautiful leather, cutout for earpiece, hole for LED, not too thick material and no adhesive required. Ordered yesterday (Jan 8th) from Amazon.ca and will be delivered today (Jan 9th). http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00PFOY3YK/ref=pe_386430_121528420_TE_dp_1 Nice colour selection too. Now I have to wait for the Passport.

    I just bought one. After "years" of indecision (pouch, sleeve vs book type) I decided on the stilgut. Hope it doesn't disappoint. I've been a loyal oem pouch kind of guy for years. First try on a non oem book type case. Still don't understand why bb doesn't come up with the all time classic pouch....

    Stilgut case arrived yesterday, nice tan leather, clip fastener and the phone held securely. And it closes which my BlackBerry case did not. No more having to put something on top to keep it closed. All in all happy with my purchase, good quality for the price

    Passport or Z10, whichever is nearest

    For those with the Tetded case, can you confirm whether or not there are holes in the front for the LED notification light and/or front facing camera?
