Case for Pinephone

I bought two cases of phones with "similar" shapes, namely the Galaxy S20 Ultra (Otterbox Symmetry) and the Mate 9X Lite ("Fashion Design Personality Case"). Both are not what I was looking for - the gap is fixable with a 3d printed placeholder, however, due to PP being wider, you just can't put the phone face down in the case - not even thinking about dropping it. Hence, you never get any kind of Otterbox-like experience. :-(

Any suggestions for other phone models with a similar depth of the PP?

I guess I will have to try one of the fully 3D printed ones. Any recommendations regarding the material?

Other than that, I thought about getting the Otterbox Defender (Pro) for the S20 Ultra and "hacking" it.

If I were going to print a case I would make a TPU inner soft 'bumper' case and a nylon outer hard shell though ABS filament is also tough and easier to find.
There is a linked model for a 'negative' above so it should be pretty easy to use that to remove the shape from a simple shell on OpenSCAD or whatever you use.  You just need to add through holes for switches, USB and audio.
Hi all, a leather flip case for PinePhone Pro, does anything like that exist?

I see can make a case for the PPP but it looks like it can fall out because there is no closure, and the fabric looks soft.

@User 16030 which case did you use in ?
I'd like to create my own in genuine leather, but raw materials are rather expensive, unfortunately. And, I don't know if it's worth going straight to synthetic leather when I'd like to keep a spirit of authenticity all the same for my Pinephone. Any recommendations?
