MABEL AND CO Letterpress Printed Seed Box - Vegetables


A letterpress printed box for vegetable seeds, made by Mabel and Co in Suffolk.

Inspired by the below stairs and kitchen garden storage containers and stationery used in large country houses, this box combines function and simplicity with a pared-back vintage style.

Hand-made from a timeless brown card and letterpress printed with the words “Vegetable Seeds” on the front. The typeface is Baskerville, designed by John Baskerville in Birmingham around 1750.

The box comes with four tabbed dividers in a green card, for a gardener to organise and sort their seed packets.

The whole set is hand printed on Mabel & Co’s Victorian treadle printing press using natural linseed oil ink.

Complete with an information card detailing how the box was made, this would make a thoughtful gift for anyone who grows vegetables, whether on their patio, in their garden or at an allotment.
