The English Tuck Box Company makes luxury boarding school tuck boxes with sturdy metal, leather or rope fittings. Handmade by fine British cabinet makers, English Tuck Boxes are practical and enduring, and can be personalised with painted initials, a name or school crest.

Whether it’s a present for a son, daughter, grandchild or godchild, the robust yet classic design means that as well as keeping tuck and precious items safe, a beautifully-made English Tuck Box will see them through school and university to become a family heirloom.

What's more, an English Tuck Box has many alter egos: a keepsake trunk, a chest for favourite childhood toys, a hobby box, a bride and groom memento trunk or even a nifty stand for a lamp. It makes an ideal personalised gift for a christening, wedding or birthday.

Bespoke furniture designer Matt Podesta, and his wife Claire, an artist and designer, were inspired to start The English Tuck Box Company after their eldest daughter started at boarding school. When Matt designed a unique tuck box for her to take to school, they realised there was a gap in the market for fine quality tuck boxes: The English Tuck Box Company was born.
