We all know how great storage is and stylish storage is even better. Sagitine have introduced a new range of beautiful storage boxes, designed to transform wardrobe care. And they have one of the most beautiful shoe storage solutions I’ve seen in a long time; something incredibly hard to find (trust me, I’ve been looking!).
The brand has high hopes: to inspire beautiful living and offer an advanced method of storing and cataloguing clothes, shoes and accessories. This is serious storage and boy, does it look good. Sagitine’s stackable, multipurpose boxes can be purchased on their own or with accompanying stands which transform them into stylish storage units. Genius. I love the flexibility!
While they look straight out of Italy perhaps, they’ve been developed by Sydneysider Tina Clark, from a simple desire to store and savour her prized items of clothing for later years, when her daughters would be old enough to wear them. Living in Hong Kong at the time, she couldn’t find a storage box that was either beautiful or durable enough to last the test of time. After a year-long search for beautiful storage solutions, she did what many business owners do, and decided to create her own, giving up a career in finance in the process.
Unlike the clunky and kitsch storage offerings of old, Sagitine boxes and stands are beautiful in their own right and look at home amongst existing bedroom furniture or integrated into wardrobe and storage spaces. The boxes are available in three sizes – ideal for shoes, accessories, garments and even gowns — and two colour options – classic black and white – to suit any décor.
The boxes are made from high-grade sustainable cardboard with monogrammed leather handles, and are accompanied by a select range of accessories to help preserve treasured fashion items, including beautiful English-made polished horn clothes brushes, cedar blocks, lavender and herb pouches and drawstring muslin bags to keep valuable fabrics safe and sound. The stands are made from aluminium with a powder coated finish and have solid walnut tops. I absolutely have my eye on a box and stand combination for my shoes.
The name Sagitine is a blend of Tina and her daughters’ (Sabine and Gisele) names, which is apt given the range was inspired by her need to preserve items for them to one day inherit.
Sagitine products are available online, in Sydney at Becker Minty, and can be shipped Australia and worldwide.
