August Sandgren is a bookbinder and box-maker with a 100-year-old legacy. Today, we handcraft timeless, functional, and aesthetic storage objects to help you declutter your home and office. We make our boxes, covers and holders from primarily surplus materials, sourced from exclusive partners in the European furniture and fashion industry. When not possible to use surplus, we craft our boxes from European oekotex certified leather and natural fibre fabrics. At this year’s CIFF, we present a new project. At the fair, apart from our standard assortment, we showcase a unique collaboration with some of Denmark’s leading fashion brands. The heart of the project is about upcycling – showcasing how the industry, the brands, upcycles deadstock by taking dresses, shirts and skirts from past collections and making them into new products – in this case storage boxes, jewellery boxes, notebooks, and key hangers in classic August Sandgren shapes. The result is both illuminating and beautiful. We look forward to showing you our collection and our upcycling project objects.
