HAVE A QUESTION?

General

    • People always ask if MIKOL cases are drop proof?

      As any luxury fashion product, it is handled with love and care.  MIKOL cases are not 100% drop proof, but they do provide a certain protection. Being made of natural materials, your case may not survive an impact. This is true of any case marble product. The cases will protect your iPhone and iPad from normal wear and tear, but it is not guaranteed against drops of any kind. For cases that break from being dropped, we offer our Warranty Program. Because natural material varies greatly, sometimes the case survives really harsh drops onto concrete, other times they break from the slightest drop onto carpet. This depends on the unpredictable chance of where it hits and the variation in the material. This is why we say our cases won't survive drops, even though they often do.  Although we cannot guarantee it, there have been numerous incidents where iPhones and iPads have been saved by our case. Like a motorcycle helmet, it might break in a crash, but it will save your iPhone or iPad's life.
    • How will my case wear over time?

      The case will wear gracefully like fine, hand-oiled furniture. The oils from your hand polish the case.  The marble will absorb the oils and brighten up the material with a more refined color just as Jade does.  If you want the marble to be completely sealed, we recommend asking a local marble shop and purchasing coating from them.
    • Do you offer custom laser engraving?

      Certainly! 
    • Will you be making cases for other cellphones and devices?

      We currently do not have plans to develop cases for other phones. Please follow us on Twitter @MikoLMarmi or Facebook for updates.
    • What kind of maintenance and care?

      Be careful with common foods and drinks contain acids that may etch or dull the stone surface. Also, some common toiletries (i.e., perfume, toothpaste, mouthwash) contain acids and other ingredients that may damage the stone surface or degrade the sealer.  Highly acidic substances such as orange juice, coffee, vinegar, wine, tomato products, mustard and many soft drinks will “etch” most marble, limestone and travertine.  Soft clothe and water should be able to clean most stains.  Treat the product as you would any luxury item.  You could visit any local marble store for more professional stone care products.   Recommended Products - Revitalizer® Cleaner and Protector - Stone & Tile Cleaner

  • iPhone Case

    • How durable is the case? Will it survive a drop?

      All marble cases, ours included, may not be the best choice for people prone to dropping their phones. MIKOL cases are not 100% drop proof. The case may not survive an impact. This is typical of many cases made from natural materials or hard plastics. If you are worried about dropping your phone, we suggest cases made of silicone or rubber, such as Otterbox. That being said, we’ve engineered our cases to be as durable as possible. Although, we can’t guarantee the case against drops, it is possible for it to survive many standard drops, along with some gentle wear-and-tear. In the event that your case breaks from a drop, we offer a warranty program. For any manufacturing defects, your new case is covered under our standard warranty from the date that the case is shipped.
    • Will screen protectors work with your iPhone case?

      Yes. Any type of front screen protector, covering only the screen of the phone, will not interfere with the case. However, due to the tight fit of our case, any screen protectors which wrap around the sides or back of the phone are not compatible.
    • How can I clean the case and maintain it?

      Use a damp rag to rub the case clean, then dab it dry with a clean cloth. If needed, use a diluted solution of water and mild dish soap on a rag and wipe dry. This is not a necessary step, but if you would like to re-oil the case, you can use boiled linseed oil.
    • Can I just get a replacement for the top or bottom?

      Unfortunately, our tops and bottoms are not interchangeable, since each case is milled from one single piece of material to have a unique fit. If we were to send you a top or bottom piece, it would not align properly with the other half for a smooth and snug fit.

    • How does the MacBook plate go on?

      The Macbook plate can be attached with a peel-and-stick 3M adhesive. It is removable and will not damage your phone or leave behind a permanent residue. Any residue left can be removed using rubbing alcohol. The Backplate may be able to be removed and repositioned when first applying, but this product is not intended to be taken on and off like a case. The adhesive will not survive repeated removal.
    • How do you get the phone in and out of my Case?

      The phone will snap easily in from the front. To remove it you can easily pop the case out from the back with the leather cover folded completely back.
