It does the job and doesn't cost much but I would have willlingly paid double or more for a better item. It does seem to be made of leather with a plastic moulding which holds the phone snugly.. The stylus is loose with a short 1" lead ending in a plastic plug. The plug looks as if it might be to insert in the earphone socket but don't fancy trying it. Btw I'm seem to have lost the stylus already.
