Tin Treasure Box
Everyone has treasure and will eventually need a treasure box. While our treasures may differ they are so defined by their value to us. Lately we have begun collecting ocean plastic treasure from the beach. This may not seem as valuable as, say, gold, but its potential to impact the world for good (or bad) is just as real. After all, it is not the treasure itself that holds the power, but what you do with it.
We honour our materials greatly, especially the ones we find in abundance. For we value abundance over scarcity. Togetherness over competition. Tin cans are particularly valuable to us and so we strive to let them shine as brightly as they can. This humble box will glam up any room while helpfully holding your valuables within its fortified tin walls. Its canvas hinge lets the lid sit flat so you can display your treasures as you search for that special piece. The latch closes with satisfying tension and inside there is a subtle compartment for holding special documents or letters.
Unique design. All Materials Salvaged: Tin cans, sustainable hardwood, metal latch. 26 x 17 x 12 cm. 2017
