Storage is always an issue in any household, especially for those small easy-to-lose items. With these lovely little boxes you can tuck them away out of sight but readily available, and take enormous pleasure in their hideaway. The delightful design is the lotus flower, a traditional flower of Cambodia. This one is hand-painted on the box by one of our in-house craftsman or woman.
First the box is carved, and carefully sanded, making sure that there is a correct fit between lid and box. Then it is primed with crude lacquer, before the application of several coats of high-quality lacquer in the colors of choice. The artisan has to wait for the lacquer to dry between coats so it is a time-consuming process. In the final stages the lotus flower is painted on. The lacquer gives a strong and lasting surface to the original wooden box, as well as making it a thing of beauty. One of these would make a perfect gift, if you can bear to give it away.
