This is such a beautiful, useful, box! Such a lovely piece! Thank you!
I ordered two (2) writing boxes for myself and my daughter. The overall product is a beautiful work of art. The workmanship is a 'work of art'. I am very happy with my purchase. However, one writing box has an imperfection (see photo). The imperfection does not keep my daughter from using her gift. She is very happy with her gift but she wanted me to let you know that there is a small problem with the writing box. My overall rating is five stars and hopefully this email will be a note to the artisans for the future.
I bought this item after seeing it on Instagram and looking at lots of reviews. It is fantastic. It came promptly, was in immaculate condition and I now use it every single day!
Beautifully presented and a perfect self gift for a vintage loving girl. As others have mentioned the extra little gifts and the sturdy box it arrives in add value and a sense of occasion when you unpack.
I received my Crazy Horse Brown (My favorite leather) Medic Bag last week. It is so beautiful! The patina will only get better with age. It fits well as a crossover strap bag. It is more spacious than I imagined with numerous compartments. The workmanship is superb. The closures are snug. I received all kinds of goodies. The bags and box were such a great added touch so that it arrived safely. Thank you for such a wonderful piece of art!
This is a wonderful piece of art that is highly recommended! If the leather strap seems to be to tide don't worry, it will loosen a bit!
Perfectly portable, eminently flexible. This little box can hold everything I need to be creative on the go. It is well made and sturdy to stand up to continuous use. It causes envy from all my friends who see it.
The Writing Box is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. It arrived very promptly, in perfect condition, beautifully packed in a Galen Leather cardboard box and wrapped in a plastic bag inside the FedEx bag to prevent any water damage en route. And the little extras included in a parcel from Galen Leather add even more to the experience of opening it. The space inside the box is big enough for A4 paper; however, the wooden lid supports (used when converting the box to a writing desk) get in the way so I won't carry A4 paper in it. From front to back it will take envelopes up to C5 in size; that naturally includes DL and C6. There are plenty of YouTube videos showing how much one can fit in it: a lot! I'm planning to use it for personal correspondence, storing in it correspondence received, cards, writing paper, envelopes, stamps, and of course pens. Other people use it for notebooks or journals, or sketchbooks and art media. I also purchased the leather carrying strap, a useful optional extra for anyone who wants to carry their box with them. I'm extremely impressed with Galen Leather and will be purchasing other items in the future.
Bought this as a gift for my daughters graduation. We were both very pleased. It was absolutely perfect, definitely something that she can pass down to her children one day.
Very quick shipping!!!! Over all I was very impressed with my experience with Galen leather company.
