TRAVEL MEMORY BOXES
"Thank you Katherine for a unique memory of an extraordinary place... it brings the country alive for me each time I look at it”.
Creating a memory box from a special trip is a unique and special way to capture a holiday without relying on photos. It captures the smells, sights, culture and colour in a way that photos can’t.
Each time I’ve been away, I’ve collected a range of items and organised them into memory boxes so I can capture the spirit of my travels.
In 2016, I took some time out of work and spent five months travelling from Mexico to California, via Central America. While I was away, I decided to collect a small item from every place I visited and returned home with a rucksack full of tiny treasures.
I didn’t want to bury them in a drawer, but I also didn’t want the small objects to look lost on a big shelf. So, I crafted a vintage box to house each item and displayed it on my wall.
This is where my memory boxes were born.

Every time I looked at the box, it brought back fond memories, so I decided to create memory boxes for future trips too.
The photos below document a three week trip to India. The objects I gathered showcase the colour, beauty and texture of the country.

Creating a travel memory box with me
If you'd like to commission a travel box for an upcoming trip, do get in touch and I can give you a list of items to look out for when you're travelling.
If you have a collection of treasures from a trip you’ve already made, get in touch and we can talk through the options for a travel memory box.
I also offer gift vouchers if you'd like to give the commission to someone who is planning a special trip.

I have created many travel boxes for customer's different trips over the years. You can see more examples below. Click on the images to find out more about each one.
