Hand-Painted Peacock Storage Box, Navy

  • £35.00

These beautiful storage boxes 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 boxes 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 box can be locked with the addition of a small padlock, making them a perfect place to store precious items, keepsakes or important documents.

Please note: due to the unique hand-painted nature of these boxes, the painted designs may vary slightly (e.g. two peacocks on the lid instead of one, as shown in the product picture) but the colours and subject matter remain the same and all are equally as amazing! If you have a specific preference, please drop us a message and we will try to fulfil your request, subject to availability.
