Our Philosophy

We belive in adaptive re-use, having fun, trying new things and creating item that are useful, gorgeous and fun. We use recycled materials where possible and materials & craftsmanship of the highest quality.

We love old suitcases and this seemed like a good way to give them new use. Cigar boxes and small timber boxes are also suited to this new lease on life as gorgeous and unusual pieces - to display on their own, to display a collection of miniatures or just to play with.
