Origin Story: TABLO Wine Carriers
The TABLO Wine Carrier is inspired by a beautiful Italian leather piece that we received from a dear friend. She picked it up on her travels through Italy, and thought of us for it’s handcrafted nature. Using this as a starting point, we have re-imagined the design and production to create an easy, straightforward product with a unique look and feel. Our love for wine also fueled the concept, and it’s importance in our line and compliment to our TABLO Grazing Board business.
Each TABLO Wine Carrier is hand-crafted in Southern California. The leather is sourced, and cut in LA. And the Wine Carrier is hand-assembled, branded, oiled, and packed here in Orange County. We source the leather from secondary suppliers. While leather is by no means a “sustainable” product, we look to minimize it’s impact in the scrap and waste market.
Each TABLO Wine Carrier is crafted from genuine, durable, cowhide leather. Each leather skin is hand-selected for it’s unique character and nature, that we feel compliments our brand aesthetic. Leather is a natural material, so each Wine Carrier contains inherent wear in the leather, making each one unique. The metal fittings are finished with an Antique Brass finish. And the TABLO branding is a customized stamp built by a 3D printer to minimize waste and mold-making in the manufacturing process.
TABLO Wine Carriers each hold one 750mL bottle of wine, or other standard format liquors. Also, they can carry standard format glass bottles for water and sparking water.
We envision them being used to carry your favorite bottle of wine out to dinner, to a friend’s party, or giving them as a gift with your favorite bottle of wine. They are ideal as a hostess, holiday, or birthday gift, and as a house warming present. Not to mention, they are a great compliment to a TABLO Grazing Board, or with our Grane Serving Boards.
