A range of classic and colourful handmade luxuriously lined leather boxes which can be personalised just as you desire.
Oval leather boxes are proving popular with men, women, children, teens and in-betweens: they'll use them daily for their cufflinks, jewellery, trinkets and keepsakes, at home or away.
Marking christenings, confirmations, Bar Mitzvahs, a special birthday or anniversary, or as unusual wedding 'favours' (brilliant for bridesmaids, pages, Best Man, ushers) our boxes serve as lasting reminders of special occasions and red letter days.
Ethically sourced, fairly traded and handmade using traditional techniques to work the smooth leather which is hand coloured and polished, these boxes are wonderfully soft to the touch, with that distinctive smell of real leather.
All our leather boxes are made exclusively for us, to our own designs. This season you can choose from Ovals in Blackberry, Classic Black, Dark Green, Red Pepper, Rich Purple and Shocking Pink.
Black, green and red boxes have a matching luxury soft interior, while blackberry is lined in warm sand, shocking pink in cool turquoise and rich purple has a deep fuchsia pink interior lining.
To show just how much you care, why not have your present personalised?
Please tell us whether you would like a name or initials and/or a date. Then, 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 you love our little leather boxes why not take one in each colour? They’re ideal, not only as presents for others, but also for your favourite jewellery and cufflinks, watches, keeping tiny desk accessories in order, for craft items and all sort of other important memorabilia and bits & bobs.
All our boxes are handmade using age-old traditional skills. The carcases of the boxes are made from strong card, the lids being padded giving them a really plush feel.
The boxes are lined with suede velvet, a soft Italian fabric that gives their interiors a luxurious appearance.
The colours used are derived from vegetable dyes that are environmentally friendly, naturally occurring ingredients being used wherever possible. As these colours can fade if exposed to sunlight over a lengthy period, we recommend that the boxes are kept out of bright light.
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.
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 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.
