The boxes we have usually comes from the XIXth century, and will get back to life according to your specifications
Our tailor made work is directly develop with you, respecting traditionnal handcrafted techniques.
Our cabinet maker and girdles maker, holder of an Art and Craft degree,  can operate on the boxe's structure as much as on the exterior or interior finishing. Wood can be oak, walnut, mahogany,... or any other species. We work with differente type of fabrics: silk velvet, cotton, or wool.

Although we always care about historical accuracy, we can personnalize every element of your boxe:
brass sheet engraved with your initials, old-fashionned label, inlaying private objects, 
addition of a piece of braid, choise of the small hardware such as hinge, handle, covering button...

Therefore, every boxe is a unique model.

In order to work, we like to have the gun for which the boxe is designed.
