Each box is 100% crocheted by me with my own unique design. I do not believe that anyone else in the entire world has ever attempted to do this before!
Because all 6 sides of the box are assembled with 1/4" thick rigid cardboard reinforced with crochet on each side (creating over and inch thick of rigid cardboard-yarn protection) the box is extremely sturdy and lighter than your average record box. The box measures 9" L x 8" H x 6 1/2" W. It is larger than the "standard Platter Pak". It holds at least 70 sleeved 7" records (a Platter Pak only holds about 50).
One of my hang ups with vintage record boxes has always been the crappy plastic handles on the top of the boxes. They often break, causing the top to rip off; then all of your records fall out and break or get damaged. Also because of the handle being on top of vintage record boxes, it makes it impossible to stack boxes directly on top of one another. I've solved all of these problems with my unique design. The removeable strap on this record box (which doubles as a stylish cowl) wraps around the base of the box and is secured on both sides of the box. This not only allows you to stack another box directly on top of this box but it also allows you to easily travel with your records and "dig" hands free while keeping your records secure.
This record box can fair all conditions of weather.
Once on your shoulder, the box should hang at about waist length. It looks a little lower on me in the image because I am smaller than an average person (only 4' 11 3/4" tall!).
Each cowl has a 24" diameter (48" long) and should easily wrap around most heads and necks twice.
This specific listing is for the OOAK Orange Crush cOWL's Nest: variegated orange, beige, cream and grey box with soft grey trim. The cowl is cream with soft grey trim.
All of my handmade products are crocheted in a pet and smoke free environment. Most of the yarn used on these boxes is 100% cotton but in some cases synthetic wool has been used. Each box is one of a kind.
This box is ready to ship immediately. If you would like a box made in a different color or type of yarn or would like to create a custom request for multiple boxes, please convo me; your wish is my command!
Handling time for custom orders is 2-3wks per box. If you order multiple boxes, you will receive reduced shipping and also a discount based on the quantity of boxes ordered.
