The Bookbox is our bestselling box and was the first of August Sandgren’s aesthetic boxes for storage. Both the leather and the fabric version is useful at home and in the office for both smaller and larger piles of clutter. The Bookbox comes in three sizes, and a removable inlay to divide the box into smaller compartments, can be purchased to the large Bookbox. The Bookbox is made from natural surplus materials, meaning sometimes there is small colour variations between batches and smaller – almost invisible – natural marks. We call it perfectly imperfect.
The leather box is named ‘The Bookbox’ as it takes its origin from the beautiful old book-boxes, in which people would place their most valuable books to take extra good care of them.
Dimensions: 21/16/9 cm
Material: 100% aniline leather.
Colour: Marine blue on the exterior and forrest green on the interior.
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
This Bookbox is marine blue and made with a boy in mind. The idea was to make an alternative to the usual baptism and boys-birthday presents. It is the box for life. A treasure box you get when you are young, but you keep it with you all your life while the treasures you put inside the box will change over time.
The fusion Bookbox is a fusion between our medium Bookbox and the Jewelbox size. It is a small but tall box and it is amazing for smaller treasures and personal belongings, jewelleries, certificates and precious toys.
The leather Bookbox can be personalised with initials, name, monogram or logo.
