A luxuriously lined handmade leather box, with a hinged lid that you can have personalised to show just how much you care.

Ideal for Mother's Day or Easter, christenings, confirmations or Bar Mitzvahs, that special birthday or anniversary, the 3rd being Leather. Our little boxes also make wonderful 'wedding favours', brilliant for bridesmaids, Best Man, ushers, hens and parents. Affordable bespoke, corporate and commemorative gifts.

These 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. When embossed to personalise, each box becomes a unique present that will give a lifetime of pleasure to the recipient.

Our Oblong Leather Boxes are handmade exclusively for us, in our own contemporary designs and colours - Hot Orange, Navy Blue and Peacock Blue. Orange boxes are lined in dark green, Navy are lined red, and Peacock have a classic black interior.

To show just how much you care why not have your present personalised?

Choose from names, initials and/or dates and, with our hot foil stamping process we'll apply your choice of lettering in silver or gold. Up to nine characters (excluding full stops) can be embossed on one line, in Times Roman 22-point (CAPS only). A second line can be added, typically for dates.

If you are asking for initials, please specify whether you would like full stops, or not. If we are unsure we'll contact you to double-check and make sure you get your box personalised exactly as you want it.

If you love our little leather boxes why not take one in each colour? They’re ideal, not only as presents for friends and family, but also for your own favourite jewellery and cufflinks, watches, keeping tiny desk accessories in order, for craft items and all sort of other bits & bobs!

made from:

Our leather boxes are handmade for us, using age-old traditional skills in our own contemporary colours and designs. The colours are derived from environmentally friendly natural vegetable dyes.

As colours can fade if exposed to 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 card, the hinged lids being slightly padded, giving them a ‘plush’ feel.

All our leather boxes are lined with a soft Italian fabric that we call suede velvet, which gives their interiors a luxurious feel and appearance.

We specialise in the art of gold and silver blocking

This traditional method of embossing on leather is now an almost extinct skill. It 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 care and attention to detail, giving our boxes an expensive and exclusive appearance.

The boxes require no maintenance, other than an occasional wipe. To restore their natural lustre we recommend the use of a high quality matching or neutral 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.

    In no way looks like a £66 leather box. Luckily my friend liked it though.

    The Little Leather Box Company's response:

    Thank you for your feedback: we are sorry to hear you consider that the box you bought from us was not worth the price you paid. Actually, we operate on quite slim margins, after production costs and overheads that include a hefty hosting commission. In addition we also have to bear all the packaging and postal charges, which have to be factored into the price. If you had been able to buy it on the High Street, your box would have been considerably more expensive. Our prices are broadly in line with those of other sellers of comparable products, whilst hot foil embossing has to be set by hand and is seldom found outside of exclusive London shops. We are pleased to hear that your friend liked your generous present, that we are sure will bring her many years of pleasure.
