Beautiful and useful

With a new baby in a small flat, I no longer have the space for a desk. This is perfect for holding my stationery essentials and slips under the sofa, so I can fish it out when the baby sleeps next to me. I particularly like the tactile wood and the smooth, rounded edges and the fabric lining in the lid and base to cushion all the enclosed items. And the catch! The catch is wonderful. Easy to use, yet secure. And it locks into an open position. It's so pleasing. All in all, I'm delighted. Thank you, Galen Leather.


What a wonderful product. It's perfect for when I'm not at my desk--it makes on-the-go writing as luxorious as when I'm in my home office.

Writers Box

The writers box is gorgeous! It is the perfect size for a lap desk and holds all you need for journaling, art journaling or whatever one choose to use it for. The lid is lined with leather and has elastic straps that hold writing utensils and any tools you need securely in place. It has legs that you can prop the lid up for an angled writing experience. I also ordered the leather carry strap that makes taking it with you a breeze. I love to use it while sitting in my chair or in bed. The walnut wood has beautiful grain. I asked for a piece with lots of character and they sure delivered! These boxes are beautifully handcrafted and will be treasured for years to come.


My husband loves this writing box

Writing Box

I was already anticipating this Writing Box to be an incredible addition to my repertoire but upon seeing it in person, all expectations were far exceeded by the outstanding craftsmanship, design and care that clearly went into every detail of this box. I love the leather straps that it comes with so as to make it portable and easy to carry around. The built in legs so that it can be transformed into a writing surface was constructed and designed impeccably and has made my journaling space, which is often in my bed or on my couch, such a wonderful and comfortable experience. The compartments are perfect and it holds all my favorite creative tools so that they are securely stowed as well as a beautiful site to behold. I cannot recommend this Writing Box enough. It is a treasure, a keepsake, a portable desk and one of my favorite products from any brand. A big thank you to GalenLeather for their excellence, heart and soul in all that they create and do.
