Hand made from Black American Walnut, with each sleeve displaying the beautiful grain and colour variation. The rye straw is hand-dyed in France and is prepared, flattened, glued and cut in the London workshop. High levels of precision are required to ensure a snug fit for the enclosed matchbox and the seamless finish is achieved through a double mitring technique.
Further precision is applied to the straw marquetry design. The straw is laid in different directions to create the unique pattern and draw out the distinct reflective nature of the rye straw. The striker and finger hole are carved out and then hand finished using a chisel.
These sleeves are currently available in four colourways, taking reference from our stair runner collections. Hand made in London.
