This remarkable piece is ideal for keeping not only jewelry but also cherished letters and cards. It is made of hardwood and leather. The embossed designs are realized in an attractive graphic style, common to African abstract art, and are beautiful in their elegant simplicity. The inside of this piece is lined with velvet material. The box can be polished with leather soap and buffed with a soft cloth to maintain its beauty. Mohammed Sckeek defines his artistic process:
"The basic materials I use in making these pieces are hardwood, glue, leather and velvet material. The process involved is quite simple but for the designs on the boxes which require a certain measure of expertise. After making the box, the leather is stretched over it and glued together. Care is then taken to make beautiful and intricate designs on it."
Enrich any minimalist home décor with the dignified presence of this sleek leather box, a handsome and enduring example of African decorative arts.
As Mohammed handcrafts each individual box, please allow for slight variations in color and design.
