The Bookbox: Traceable leather - Brown - Large
Handcrafted from 100% traceable leather (down to the individual free-range cow), this Bookbox is made in collaboration with SPOOR. A beautiful example of design, craftsmanship and animal welfare.
The Large Bookbox is the biggest of our boxes, and easily holds your large piles of clutter – in your home and office space. Use it for pens, remote controls, handheld devices, notebooks, post-its, chargers, and anything else that takes up space and disturbs the eye, but which you need within immediate reach, or keep your most cherished belongings safe and stored perfectly.
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 100% traceable leather – from individual free-range cow to final product. We are incredibly excited to announce this collaboration with SPOOR a Danish leather brand that works after the values of animal welfare, craftsmanship and traceability. Similar to us. For us, it is a core value to create responsibly, and we’ve long been using surplus leather from leading furniture and fashion house that would otherwise have gone to waste. Collaborating with SPOOR, we took the opportunity to go one step further - using leather from free-range cattle, raised by Danish farmers who put animal welfare and nature conservation at the forefront of their production.
The colour of the first SPOOR collection is brown, and each box comes numbered as there are only a few units of each. Apart from this large size, it also comes in a medium and fusion size as well as our Jewelbox.
