Bridge of Weir Leather Company (BoW), part of Scottish Leather Group, and manufacturers of upholstery and sustainable Low Carbon Leather have recently supplied the leather for the Nokia Oro, Nokia’s new premium touch smartphone.
Featuring 18 carat gold plating and a menu key of sapphire crystal, the design comes in a light and dark variant featuring Bridge of Weir’s Caledonian Enhanced Vienna leather in Black and Oatmeal.
In forthcoming months, limited editions of the phone will also be available in China with Bridge of Weir Leather in Nut Brown, Totem, Bottle Green, Madeira and Jaffa amongst other colours.
Jamie Davidson, sales director for Bridge of Weir Leather commented: ‘Working in collaboration with Nokia has resulted in a product of extremely high quality. The attention to detail and exclusive materials used in the manufacture are testament to the high standards that Bridge of Weir Leather has become known for. It certainly has style and character!’
The limited edition smartphone will debut this summer with the latest Symbian Anna software, an 8 megapixel camera and an 18 carat gold edition of the Nokia J Bluetooth headset.
