Strike while it’s hot.
Matches are an indispensable household tool: for lighting the stove, the hearth, holiday candles, or in the bathroom for… well, the things we keep matches in the bathroom for. Whatever you’re using matches for, it’s better to do it in style. And whatever your style—from stripey zebrawood to rippled maple—these large and small handmade wooden matchboxes are just the thing. Each matchbox is made from American-sourced wood that’s been handpicked for its distinct and beautiful grain, and each has a strike strip on the back for perfect ignition with every match—whatever you’re using it for.
