Going bananas.

It's been a while since I last posted. These boxes was made in August. I used hand made banana fiber paper for cladding.

Boxes ready for cladding.

This time the banana paper are all of natural colour.

Medium size box with inside trays. Boxes lid are decorated with "batik" insert. The interior are also in "batik". Box measures 15 cm x 23 cm x 7.5 cm.

Because of the natural color I was inspired to work with leather on this project. It turn out nice. Boxes are trimmed with 1 inch leather strap and buckle / magnetic strap clasp. Boxes measures 30 cm x 23 cm x 7.5 cm.
