I have a fascination with sea explorers, and the cargo & supplies ships needed for long seafaring voyages. I imagine this would be one of these items. It is made of canvas & rope and brass fixings that folds flat and fits a hairdryer, toys, pencils or any other unruly item that needs containing!
Measurements: 23.5cm high x 21cm diameter.

Our products are hand forged using honest & humble materials. Their imperfections, patinas and variations are intrinsic to the underlying importance of craftsmanship within India.
If the product is made from brass, it will patina & age over time. This ever-changing characteristic makes the object even more beautiful.
If the product is blackened steel, Linseed oil or Penetrol can be used 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.
If the product is crafted with raw leather, it is 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 raw leather to remove any dark stains or spills. A little goes a long way!
