Beautiful box, a real conversation starter

I had my eye on this for a while, was a little dubious as I had read of the box warping in some cases. I am pleased to say my box has shown no such defect. It is beautifully made and a real joy to use. The leather carrying strap is also of excellent quality.

Excellent box for everything!

The handcrafted material made in my writing box is outstanding! Also I ordered the leather strap to attach to the box so I could sling it over my shoulder, excellently made! And last I use it for my writing material, I put items in for my drawings and either way I can tilt it perfectly to do my lap, at my desk, or outside. I love it and will order a gain from Galen Leather..for sure!

Oh so pretty!

Wonderful and roomy for all my favorite stationary items, and absolutely beautiful craftsmanship!


The writing box has lovely attention-to-detail. I have other leather notebooks and goods too. Galen Leather make quality handcrafted goods. If you're thinking about getting it, go for it.

Wonderfully crafted!

Thank you for the care you put into making this writing box. It will be thoroughly enjoyed!
