THE ESSENTIAL COLLECTION
At Snakehive, we believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to the products you use every day, and in 2018 we discovered that a lot of everyday carry accessories were not well made and would deteriorate quickly.

So the in-house design team at Snakehive spent over a year developing, testing and experimenting on over 41 prototypes and together, in the summer of 2019, we launched the Essentials Collection.
The collection comprises of a Leather Bifold Wallet, Credit Cardholder, Passport Holder and a Luggage Tag that have been designed to deliver more from less, and have been skilfully crafted from carefully sourced vegetable-tanned Vachetta leather. This leather was selected for its buttery-soft yet hard wearing qualities, meaning that each item has long-lasting functionality you can trust. Accented with a signature hand stitch that reflects the personality of the product, every design element of each item has been carefully considered.
OVER 50,000 CUSTOMERS HELPED
Helping our customers is of critical importance. Whether you’re chatting on site figuring out what case will fit your phone, or giving us a call to track an order, our customer service team has been there to help you every step of the way. Looking back over the past 12 months, we’ve heard some surprising, (sometimes funny!) stories from our customers.
One that stands out amongst the rest is a story about a gentleman that left his phone on the side-step of his truck, which took a heavy tumble on his drive home. Luckily, he was able to find his phone sitting on the side of the road perfectly intact thanks to the Snakehive case he had fitted. The leather of the case suffered a few scuffs and scratches, but the phone was completely unscathed. Which just goes to show that a phone case can look good and work well too.
THE NEW COLOURS
The two colours that you see here are our latest releases of the year. The requests for new colours flooded our social media earlier this year, with Grey and Teal coming out on top. We thoroughly tested over 50 shades of grey and even more of teal to bring these splashes of modernity to our Vintage Collection. Keep an eye out on our social channels for the chance to have your say on what colours we should launch next year.
9368 COFFEES
We sent our coffee machine in for a much needed servicing and came across this astonishing figure! With over 9,000 coffees of all shapes and sizes, we even treated ourselves to Snakehive branded mugs to enjoy our delightful (sometimes much needed) morning coffees. The best outcome to take away from this is that we have saved over 9,000 plastic or polystyrene take-away coffee cups from ending up in landfill sites.
1 FOOTBALL TROPHY
Now, on to our proudest achievement of 2019 - Playing the best teams in our local 5 a-side football league and taking home the top flight trophy! Our close-knit team have been playing together for just under a year. In that time, they've played over 40 games with top scorer Ben taking most of the plaudits. We’ll be cheering them again on next season, from the comfort of the stands.
THIS TIME IT'S PERSONAL
Our in-house personalisation team have been very busy this year, meticulously making our products yours. So to keep up with our personalisations we have doubled our machines to make sure that no case is rushed and the highest quality finish is achieved each and every time.
