Meryl is a dresser-top jewelry keep with plenty of storage for a wide collection of jewelry. Suede-lined compartments hold rings, watches and chains, plus Meryl comes with a takeaway jewelry keep for traveling. Alice (left) is a midsized, zippered jewelry case with two generous storage nests that include ring compartments and leather tabs for chains. Ideal for travel or a trip to the gym, Rowan is a round, zippered case with chain hooks in the lid, ring forms, and space for bracelets, earrings or a dress watch.
The clean, modern lines and superb leather craftsmanship seen in Meryl, Alice and Rowan are hallmarks of their maker, Rowallan. The company’s roots can be traced to Kilmaurs, Scotland, not far from the 19th century castle that inspired its name. One of the original founders, Jan Pattison, is a graduate of the famed Glasgow School of Art, and you can see how Rowallan has been influenced by the region’s leather-crafting heritage and world renowned reputation for modern design. Current owner Kathleen McHugh is building off the European tradition and infusing Rowallan’s newest leather goods with a fresh, colorful vibe -- which makes this trio even harder to resist.
