Barbra Ignatiev wants to live in a world where all phones are prettily protected.
Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, she currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and her cat and all her eye shadows.
As a Designer, she has worked at several in-house design departments before setting off to design on her own.
When she’s not splashing around with watercolors with her cat Foo by her side, you can find her dancing to funk music, painting her nails wild colors, mixing a fine cocktail, talking cutely to her cat, hoop dancing in the park or exploring the Bay Area with iPhone in hand, ready to capture inspiration.
Barbarian cases is her new fashion iPhone accessory brand currently based in San Francisco and founded in Washington, DC. It was launched August 2013.
Barbarian cases are limited edition bold and colorful bohemian-inspired phone cases for the wild-at-heart. Each work of art is handcrafted by Barbra Ignatiev.
The unique designs are produced in small batches of 25-100 and new designs are released monthly.
About her inspiration for the line…
“I started my line of iPhone cases because I could not find cases that appealed to me that also felt protective and yet slim. These days your phone is something you have on you all the time and I wanted my case to feel quirky, bold, bohemian and edgy ~ something that reflected me personally. Since owning my very first phone, (back then, a Nokia flip phone!) I would create pretty wallpapers and themes to make it feel my own, clumsily hacking code to make things work. Something about adorning the technology I communicate with has always appealed to me.
My cases offer beautiful, lightweight, and awesome protection. I think you’ll vibe on them as much as I do.”
