Albatross is a beautiful handmade keepsake box for your wee treasures. Absolutely perfect for keeping jewellery items safe on a bedside table, as a unique and original gift, or a place to store your watch overnight.

The main body of the box outer is made of a pure wool furnishing fabric offcut with an interesting stripe weave in a soft greeny turquoise and white.

The lid is made from a handmade textile based on an offcut of harris tweed. Wool yarn, needlefelting and machine embroidery have been used to build up texture and depth, inspired by winter’s stormy seas. A white sea bird has been embroidered by hand, soaring effortlessly over the waves.

The box is fully lined in wool felt in a co-ordinating colour. A recycled shell button has been securely stitched to the front and is used with a loop of matching thread to close this treasure box.

The handmade nature of this item means it has a rustic, raw edge look, with pokey out threads and fuzzy edges. This is entirely deliberate and is not a fault. Please ensure you are happy with the finish by checking the photographs carefully before you purchase.

This is a functional item but is not meant to withstand rough handling, so should be kept away from children and pets. The inner construction gives some rigidity, but it won’t survive being squashed. This box uses no plastic.

Approximately 6cm x 6cm x 6cm, although it’s not a perfect cube by any means.
