Each box is a unique design that draws on the contrasting and colliding colours found in the everyday.

I draw inspirations from different aspects of my life - living by the sea in Portobello, the sweeping Scottish landscape and moments of reflection.

Caroline Sewell Design - colourful wool fabrics

Each unique hand-crafted box is designed to be a one-of-a-kind abstract or geometric form, combing a rich palette of colours, textiles and textures.

The designs draw on the concept that the world around us is not made of one form; instead it is contrasting textures, colliding into each other at different intersections.

Sustainability

My Ethos

As well as having a passion for colour and design, I have always been conscious of the impact we have on the environment. Because of this I strive to create boxes that are kind to the planet.

When creating boxes from scratch, I choose materials that are environmentally friendly and, where possible, locally sourced. The wood is high quality Scottish hardwood, sourced and milled at a local timber yard in Dunfermline. The wooden legs are hand-turned by a local craftsman. Instead of using foam padding I use wool and cotton felt which is biodegradable.

The unique design collage on the lid of each box is crafted from a variety of different environmentally friendly fabrics. I often use wool from the Isle of Bute, vegan leather and vintage fabrics.

I hate to see vintage sewing boxes heading to landfill, so as well as making new boxes I also rescue these when I can! As with the new boxes, I make sure that the same high quality and environmentally friendly materials are used to transform them into one-of-a-kind designs.

When you buy a Caroline Sewell Design, you are not only buying a hand-crafted unique item of furniture, but also a product made of the highest quality environmentally friendly materials.
