I came across this vintage Handy Pack sewing kit that seems to be in mint condition with all the bits and bobs it originally included. It’s a great example of Art Deco design, and it’s nice to see how they evolved the design to be applied to the various types and sizes of the objects it held. I love that they kept the threads on round disks that mimic the shape of the box. They could have easily taken the normal little rectangle and tossed them in.
Even the scissors are unique in that they look like a bird- the screw is used as the bird’s eye- now that’s a nice touch. It truly is the details that make something great. Anyone can do the easy route and throw something together. Made in England, via The Vintage Cottage on Flickr.
