Classic and colourful handmade leather boxes, luxuriously lined in a soft Italian fabric, with a lid that can be personalised to order as desired.

Proving popular with men, women, children, teens and in-betweens: they'll use it daily for their cufflinks, jewellery, or bits and bobs, for home or away.

Marking christenings, confirmations, Bar Mitzvahs, a special birthday or anniversary, or as unusual wedding 'favours' (brilliant for bridesmaids, Best Man and ushers) our boxes serve as lasting reminders of red letter days, including Easter - why not pop some eggs inside!.

Ethically sourced, fairly traded and handmade using traditional techniques to work the leather which is hand coloured and polished, these boxes are wonderfully smooth to touch, with that distinctive smell of real leather.

Our Oval boxes are hand made to our own designs in Blackberry, Classic Black, Dark Green, Red Pepper, Rich Purple and Shocking Pink.

Black, green and red boxes have matching interior linings, while blackberry is lined with warm sand, shocking pink with a cool turquoise and rich purple with a deep fuchsia pink 'suede velvet' fabric.


All of our leather boxes can be personalised with initials, names, memorable dates and occasions.

Up to nine characters (excluding full stops) can be embossed on one line, in silver or gold. Our font is 22pt Times Roman capitals. A second line can be added, typically for dates. Please say where want fullstops when you order, although if we're not sure we will contact you to clarify.

When embossed, an Oval Box becomes a truly unique present, giving a lifetime of pleasure to the recipient.

If you too love our little leather boxes why not take one for yourself in every colour? They are ideal for your favourite watch, jewellery, cufflinks or little desk and craft accessories!

made from:

All our boxes are hand-made using age-old traditional skills. The carcases of the boxes are made from strong cardboard, the lids being padded giving them a ‘plush’ feel.

The boxes are lined with suede velvet, an acrylic material 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.

    The box originally arrived in beautiful packaging. However there was a minor but noticeable mark on the box and as it was a gift I returned it asking the mark to be removed. The response was initially very defensive and the sellers denied there being a mark despite it being clear in photographs. I was subsequently assured that the mark had been removed and the box would be sent gift wrapped with a gift message attached. The box's mark was far less noticeable upon return however the mark was still present. Further the product was now without the pretty packaging it had originally come in, it was only covered in bubble wrap and the gift message was scribbled on a piece of scrap paper. Far from what would normally be expected as 'gift wrapped' product. I was very disappointed in the service, and I would not recommend.

    The Little Leather Box Company's response:

    Thank you for your feedback: we are sorry to hear you consider that the quality of the box you bought from us, and/or our service, was poor. As we say in our description of the boxes, they are handmade, also being coloured by hand, so minor imperfections can occur. In this case there was a tiny pinhead-sized spot where the dye had not adhered to the leather. When you returned the box, at our request, we did not appreciate that this was the 'mark' you complained of, but noted that you were otherwise 'very happy with the quality of the box'. After rectification we posted the box the next day to your boyfriend in Northern Ireland, in good time for Christmas, as you had asked. We very much hope that your boyfriend appreciated your generosity in giving him such a memorable gift that we are sure he will treasure for years to come.
