Our process

  • The Famous Bramah locks

    It's hard to imagine a world without locks. These simple devices have been protecting our posessions for centuries and the Bramah lock was one of the most innovative designs in history. The Bramah registration system provides a certificate of ownership and authenticity ensuring only the signator of the box is authorised to obtain keys.

  • Heritage Leather

    The use of premium leathers has been at the core of Wickwars Despatch boxes since 1850, a tradition that is firmly rooted in the House. The legendary Wickwar heritage leather can only be created from the best natural animal hides that have been prepared with flawless century-old craftsmanship. Their bright surface, built-up natural patina, and tenacity serve as distinguishing features.

  • World-class Carpentry

    Wickwars quality comes from within. Concealed underneath the leather lies a hand-crafted piece of skilled carpentry built using traditional joinery methods.
