As well as being inspired by the idea of belonging to a society of like-minded curious people like The Shield Mirror, the Society Mirror’s form was born from a similar shaped but smaller version of a travel shaving mirror I have amongst my collection of vintage mirrors.
Measurements: 24.5cm high x 23cm wide x 0.5cm deep.

Our products are hand forged using honest & humble materials. Their imperfections, patinas and variations are intrinsic to the underlying importance of craftsmanship within India.
Our brass will patina & age over time, this ever-changing characteristic makes the object even more beautiful.
Linseed oil or penetrol can be used on all of our blackened steel to keep it rich & dark in colour. This will also prevent & remove any rust which may build up over time in coastal or wet environments. Dot a rag with penetrol & massage into the steel for 3-5 minutes & leave to dry. We recommend a few coats over the life of the product.
Our raw leather products are designed to age & darken over time. We love when the story of the user & their environment is imprinted on our products. Oxalic acid can be used to wipe down your raw leather to remove any dark stains or spills. A little goes a long way!
