So beautiful and a real holiday treat!

I ordered this as an alternative to the writing desk after stumbling upon it in the online catalog and I’m so happy I bought it for myself. I can hardly wait to get started on the holiday cards I plan to break it in with! The wood was obviously cut with care as the grain looks balanced and carefully positioned on the top of the box, but it also looks natural and beautiful through the sanding and stain process. The drawer fits well and is deep enough to hold a pen pouch, stamp, eraser or small box of ink cartridges, clips, etc. There’s plenty of room for an A5 notebook, and a fairly thin one can even be held open under the top clip. The package arrived quickly and it was such a nice bonus to get the nice note about the company and founder, along with the stickers, postcard, coffee, tea and towelette in one of Galen’s branded canvas pouches. Excellent job and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks!

The Reason I started my Galen leather collection

This is my personal favorite. I love everything about this sketch box. I love the scent of the wood and the excellent craftsmanship. Can't wait for my next purchase.

An immaculate piece of woodworking!

This sketchbox is such a treat to the senses. Such a simple design, and yet it was executed with enough foresight and consideration to ensure that every component functions without any complication or hinderance. It comfortably fits two A5 notebooks, and when using the included wooden divider, I still have plenty of room to store whatever supplies I may need for the project at hand. It's genius!

Love it!

I am really in love with this box. The wood is so beautiful. I mainly use it as a prop on my photo’s for Instagram. But I also like to put stuff in it from my hobby-corner and take it to the living room to work there on my projects. It fits quite a lot! So I use it both for decor and for its functionality ❤️
