Joe's handmade this keyring from Welsh Chestnut, synonymous with ancient wisdom, is grown near Caerphilly. It feels good in your hand and fits snugly in your pocket, protected with a hardwearing lacquer for durability. The Spring steel is sourced in the UK and is approx 70 mm thick.
Joe brings his Italian heritage into all his individually designed and hand-finished craft - handmade in Caerphilly, South Wales, UK.
His love of wood and crafting is drawn from a long tradition in his Anglo-Italian family of working with one’s hands, with natural products. When Joe was a young boy he worked alongside his Italian father, a master carpenter. His Godfather was also a master craftsman working with antique furniture. He also inherits his skill from his British side – his uncle was renowned for his Sussex Trug baskets.
At JoeBoxes we aim to conserve energy, using sustainable sources. Using locally sourced wood from ethical timber yards and farms. Naturally, waste material is produced - it keeps us warm and the sawdust is saved for the local community bonfire every November.
