Having had a desk in my bedroom when I was a design student, I can now say that I really appreciate the separation between work and relaxation.  The compartmentalisation of tasks is invaluable for productivity which is why I worked with Craftsman Edward de Lacy to bring you these beautiful desk trays.

A place for your creative tools.

A craftsman with a meticulous attention to detail and dedication to his craft, it was clear that Edward and I shared a common interest for creating the most useful and beautiful objects we could. This desk tray is no exception.

Minimal leather pen desk tray / tidy.
• Dimensions: Width 9cm Length: 22cm Height 2cm.
• Designed and handcrafted by Edward de Lacy.

• Wet formed construction. The leather is soaked in water then hand formed around a mould.

Why Tom's Studio

Values & Craftsmanship

Tom still uses the same design principles as the very first pen he made for his wife. It's important to him to create products that his customers will cherish for the rest of their lives. It's why each every one of my products has a lifetime guarantee.

 "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." William Morris

Creativity Tools

Tools of the past were made by master craftspeople that cared passionately about their craft and the experience of the people using their products. We seem to have lost the 'soul' of these tools in the age of mass production. It's my mission to bring the creative soul back to the tools we use every day.

"Creativity is contagious, pass it on" Albert Einstein

Tried and Tested

Seeing his calligrapher wife, Gemma Milly, using a mass-produced calligraphy pen inspired Tom to craft a collection of pens that matched the high quality of her work. Using a 60-year-old engineering lathe, he now makes pens for some of the world’s most celebrated calligraphers and stationery brands.

"Beauty Is The Harmony Of Purpose And Form." Alvar Aalto

A Labour Of Love

From the first pen I made for my wife to the pens I now make for my customers around the world.  I put the same care and attention into each and every pen.  I love what I do and hope that it shows in the finished product.
