The Medium Bookbox is great for your small piles of clutter on your desk or shelves. With its A5 size, it can hold your everyday objects or your most cherished belongings, helping to create order and ease in your surroundings.

The Bookbox is our bestselling box and was the first of August Sandgren’s aesthetic boxes for storage. The box is named ‘The Bookbox’ as it takes its origin from the beautiful old bookboxes, in which people would place their most valuable books to take extra good care of them.

This Bookbox is crafted in the most exquisite surplus leather from one of our amazing surplus leather partners e.g., Ecco Leather, Sorensen Leather and Fredericia Furniture. Crafting boxes from surplus materials means that sometimes there are small colour variations between batches and smaller – almost invisible – natural marks. We call it perfectly imperfect. 

The colour of this Bookbox is black, and most often we will also have cognac and grey in our assortment. Sometimes, when materials are available, we will have other beautiful colours. The surplus leather box is always the same colour on the exterior and the interior, and apart from this medium size, it also comes in a large, small, and fusion size. 

Dimensions: 26/20.5/6.5 cm (A5 in internal measures)
Material: Surplus leather. The exact type of leather may differ from time to time, as this box is made from surplus leather and the leather quality used therefore depends on the available screenings of leather. The leather is however always among the highest quality of European leather.
Colour: Black both on the exterior and interior. The exact colour may change depending on the available surplus leather, however, if more than one box is ordered we will make sure it is the same leather quality and colour send
Production location: Handmade in Portugal
Logo placement: Discretely blind debossed inside the lid
Personalisation: Possible to deboss initials, name, monogram, or logo on the top of the lid of the box
