Aged and Vintage Boxes
Several years ago we began getting requests for boxes made from old or aged wood. Since it is totally impractical to make new boxes from old material we went to work developing a way to make our freshly cut pine look years old. After much experimentation with many different ingredients we developed a solution that will within 24 hours turn the wood from looking brand new to years old just sitting there.
A very large proportion of our Li’l Boxes are used in the food industry so one of the main criteria was that it needed to be 100% organic- and it is!
The beauty of our ‘ageing’ process is that unlike a stain that coats the box in an even colour, the ageing solution reacts differently with each board depending upon the characteristics of the wood. Check out the photo below with the boxes we made for Havaianas - beautiful!
