These little 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 good to touch with that distinctive smell of real leather.
Heart boxes are available now in Romantic Red (lined in red) and Peacock Blue (lined in black).
All our leather boxes may be personalised with your own choice of names, initials and/or dates
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 need to give an extra special gift as a token of your affection.
On a Heart box nine characters (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; we'll always contact you if we are unsure.
When embossed to personalise, each box becomes a unique present that will give a lifetime of pleasure to the recipient.
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 natural and environmentally friendly vegetable dyes. 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. All our boxes are lined with a soft Italian fabric we call suede velvet, which gives their interiors a luxurious appearance.
The boxes require no maintenance, other than an occasional wipe. To restore their natural lustre we recommend the use of a high quality neutral or 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.
