A soft sheepskin suede in Purple Heart, lines the interior of the box, complementing the colour of the Walnut and picking out the purple inlay of the edges.

This kind of Walnut normally has a very straight grain with pronounced colour differences in obvious lines. This is because the Walnut is quarter sawn which allows some figuring to appear, subsequently giving a very contemporary masculine look.
