Has anyone found a case for the N5 that has REAL carbon fiber, not the skins and stickers and fabric, the real deal?

I've been looking since the phone launched and haven't found one :/

If the pictures are accurate, this doesn't look anything like real carbon fiber.

Also the price leads me to believe it's not as well...

Carbon fiber in daily usage actually means "carbon fiber reinforced polymer", so it is normal that the fibers are molded into the case.
Also this material seem to block Wifi signals so I wouldn't recommend getting a case made of such.

Ive had carbon fiber cases on other phones and it never reduced signal or wifi reception. Still cant find a real one though.

I've got the silver Caseology. Not real cf. It looks good but, after 6 months of use, the fabric is wearing off the corners of the case.
