    I am a mechanical engineer and material science always fascinated me. Hence the carbon fiber and kevlar interest.

    Oneplus One was never intended for the rich, I believe it was meant for ppl like us who know what a phone shud be worth and most importantly, believe in 'Never Settle'

    If it was only about the availability of raw materials, we would hv made the Oneplus one here itself in India.

    The Bamboo cover is made in limited numbers and in small batches probably....

    Look at all the official accessories they sell in India.. Tempered glass , a couple of flip covers and a couple of headphones....thats all...not even spare chargers or cables....not even replacement sandstone or silk white back's..

    This should give you an idea why they were probably not expecting to sell "expensive" accessories here...

    They have hinted at powerbank release now...so late...at a time when they are probably about to announce the OnePlus2 anytime in a month or two...

    The styleswap idea is a bad idea as they themselves admitted as it is a bit difficult to mass produce these...and a bit easy to damage the phone trying to remove and install backs...thus the already limited numbers...

    They probably thought nobody is gonna buy a 3000Rs ~ or whatever priced back...and never bothered to relesse it here...

    If you are still expecting answer to your question of "why?" , tag an Admin ..

    I got my Battery Case - Bamboo Swap Cover from Ali Express. It costed me around $56. Took around 25 days time to reach India.

    Its worth each penny spent on it. No regrets !
