Hand Painted Leopard Storage Trunk, Navy

  • £95.00

These beautiful storage trunks were painted by hand in Pakistan by the renowned artisans who create 'truck art'.

Truck art is a highly decorative art form in South Asia, where trucks are elaborately customised by their owners. The detailed designs are personalised to contain elements that remind the drivers of home when they are out on the road for months at a time. Kaleidoscopic patterns feature elaborate florals, exotic animals and sometimes even depict historical scenes or poetic verses.

Collected on travels through Pakistan by a well-connected funky dude who’s business motto is ‘good shit, good prices’, these gorgeous chests are a rare find! Please be aware that due to their rustic nature, each have charming imperfections such as light scratches, chips or paint drips.

These trunks are as practical as they are handsome! Their generous size lends well to storing clothing, towels, or bed linen. Or with the addition of a small padlock, they are a perfect place for your treasured items and keepsakes.
