Wonderful wood writing box

Galen leather knocks it out of the park with their wood writing box. Love the grain and space for journal storage. Amazing price you won’t regret the purchase.

What a beautiful box<3

Such a lovely surprise. The writing box is perfect and was well package for the trip from Istanbul. I especially enjoyed the little travel stamps and tea that was tucked in for the journey. Every person who lives an analog life deserves to purchase such a high quality gift for themselves or for a loved one. What a lasting legacy to dear Zeynep—she lives on in the beautiful craftsmanship of Galen Leather.

Really cool writing box

The design is really pretty.
It can store a lot of things.
Seconds, but I can't find any fault with it.

I love my writing box. It’s beautifully made and is just the right size. My notebooks and pens fit perfectly. The box also arrived quickly. I live near Boston, MA.

I got this as a second and I am entirely unable to spot a flaw, as always it was superbly packed and delivery was very quick. 100% recommend.

Writing Box

Received the Writing Box -- gorgeous wood! Better in person than photos show. Beautifully packaged. Box has no defects or scratches. Inside beautifully lined. I will love filling it with my treasured pens, paper, clips, ink, and other things I love!

Beautiful Piece

Even though I purchased a 'seconds' writing box, it is beautiful wood and workmanship. I am absolutely thrilled to own such a beautiful piece from Galen Leather. And thank you for the fast shipping with Fedex!

This box is so lovely. I've been longing for one for a while and finally purchased it during seconds sale and, honestly, I can't see any wrong with it.

The box is well crafted and sturdy. I also purchased the leather carry-in kit which I would recommend. It really does make carrying it easier.

I have been purchasing products from Galen for a few years now and they never disappoint. The craftsmanship is out of this world and shipping is secure and timely. Like my other Galen products, I feel that I have a treasure with this box, something that will always make me smile when I use it.
