Created in early 2019, we are based in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom, and offer prompt and secure delivery of our hardware products to your door, wherever you reside in the UK, Europe, and much further afield.

Where we started…

Our founder, Ian Hawthorne at Hawthorne Fine Boxes, has been using the Neat Hardware Range on his bespoke boxes for several years.  One of the first instances he used the Neat Hinges was for a special Royal Wedding box commission for HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.  The hardware has continued to evolve over the past ten years, as we make design improvements.  This range of quality jewelry (jewellery) box hardware is perfect for bespoke, high-end boxes.  It is also ideal for use as presentation box hardware and cufflink box hardware.

Our Aim

From the highly skilled cabinet makers, to wood-workers and the box hobbyists, we aim to help you further enhance your handcrafted box creations with our quality box hardware.
