Elyse Marie Welcher says her handmade-in-America leather catch-alls, which she created in collaboration with Working Class Studio*, can be used for "anything and everything," so why not sorting Dum Dums? (Last night's evening activity of choice for my toddler). Ours was a gift from my mother-in-law and has just today been cleared of lollipops in favor of a much more practical use: pens, stamps, and mail storage on the entryway table. We love that it's something we'll use every day, serving as a constant reminder of one of our favorite people on the planet.
The trays come in four different sizes (shown above in medium, a 13" square) and are handcrafted with oil-tanned leather on the exterior, which makes them incredibly durable; The soft dyed suede on the interior provides a rich pop of color. Each corner has a gunmetal snap for easy tray creation, but since it can be stored flat, it would also make an excellent organizational tool for travel.
Important note: The given measurements on the site are for the the unsnapped tray. For example, once snapped, the medium 13" square provides about 8.5" of usable space.
