In the Summer of 2017 Abeona.NYC was conceived by Julie & Jelena while they both lived New York. Cellular phones have become central to everyday life and so they decided to design a carrying case that was both practical and stylish; to create an accessory which would keep your phone close and safe while adding to your own unique style.
Both girls grew up in Europe but the two met in 2013 in Cape Town, South Africa. Over the next few years they both worked and lived in cities all over the world, constantly on the move. Connecting again in NYC . they came up with an idea to combine a wallet with a phone case to create a stylish purse.
In next to no time you can make a call or text, take photos, and access your cards or use ApplePay, all while your phone remains safely secured to you. This is perfect for people on the go!
What's in a Name?
In ancient Rome the Goddess ABEONA was tasked with keeping those safe as they learned to go out on their own. Like the Goddess for which it is named, we hope that our cases will keep safe what is most important to you in your travels!
