A luxuriously-lined Heart-shaped Leather Box for presentation or safe storage of favourite cufflinks and treasured jewellery, with a detachable lid that can be personalised.
A great little gift for your other half, for WAGS or the best men in your life. Our heart-shaped leather box is the perfect token of affection - nothing says "I Love You" better than a heart box with a personalised lid.
Our leather boxes are ethically sourced, fairly traded and handmade, using traditional techniques to work the leather which is then coloured and polished, making them wonderfully soft to the touch with that distinctive smell of real leather. When embossed to personalise, each box becomes a unique present that will give a lifetime of pleasure to the recipient.
Heart boxes are available this season in Romantic Red and Bright Turquoise.
You can also find Horseshoes, Oblongs and Ovals here at notonthehighstreet.com in a wide range of colours. Some come with a matching interior pad we've specially designed for perfect presentation of a pair of smart cufflinks or elegant earrings. Please ask us if you need a pad and we will advise you which designs have them inside. There's no extra charge.
All our leather boxes may be personalised with your own choice of words or letters (a brief message, a name, set of initials and/or date/s) using a hot foiling process, now an almost extinct skill, in either silver, gold or black. Nine characters on a Heart (excluding full stops) can be embossed on one line (in Times Roman 22-point CAPS). A second line can be added, typically for dates. Please tell us where you would like full stops when you are ordering initials on the lid.
Our leather boxes are handmade for us exclusively, using age-old traditional skills, to our own designs in a wide variety of classic and contemporary colours derived from vegetables - natural and environmentally friendly.
As these colours can fade if exposed to strong sunlight over a lengthy period, we recommend that the boxes are kept out of bright light.
The carcases of the boxes are made from strong cardboard, the lids being padded giving them a ‘plush’ feel. Oval and Heart-shaped lids are detached, whilst the lids of the Horseshoe and Oblong boxes are hinged. The lids of the Horseshoe boxes are secured by a popper.
All the boxes are lined with suede velvet, an acrylic material that gives their interiors a luxurious appearance.
We specialise in the art of gold and silver blocking (classic embossing on leather, now an almost extinct skill) which involves setting brass type into a 'chase' that goes into a heavy hot foiling machine. The lid of a box is secured on a pro-forma shape, which in turn is fastened to the machine’s table. Exact positioning is essential to ensure that the imprint is central and square, before inserting the foil used to give the embossing the desired colour, and lowering the chase to make the impression.
This process calls for considerable skill and attention to detail, giving our boxes an expensive and exclusive appearance, ideal if you are presenting a token of affection or an extra special corporate bespoke gift.
The boxes require no maintenance, other than an occasional wipe. To restore their natural lustre we recommend the use of a high quality matching coloured leather polish, followed by gentle buffing with a soft cloth. Treated in this way one of our boxes will give many years of pleasure to the owner, as well as serving as a stylish reminder of the generosity of the giver, and that special occasion.
