Mabel & Co Pencil Case


Local designer maker studio based in Suffolk focusing on sustainability and traditional craft practices.

This lovely box is made from recycled brown card, decorated on the lid, sides, base and underside of lid with hand-letterpress, which makes it an ideal gift. The design draws from packaging layouts from the 1960’s and 70’s and uses the British alphabet, a typeface which was designed by Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert in 1965 for British Rail.
