A special little tin for that particularly aromatic spice that you’re probably not keeping in the kitchen and which anyway is much too good for the little plastic bags in which it is usually traded – designed by Jens Sierra Lingemann, Frank Leder and Billy Wagner.
Made of brass, this tin boasts a warm colour and is bound to age beautifully. The can and the lid are made in a traditional workshop in Southern Germany, where the brass is pressed into shape over a wooden core. Jens then finishes each tin by hand, inserting a small rubber ring into it to ensure it seals airtight. (We do like our spice fresh, don’t we?!)
The tin comes in a small bag made by Frank Leder out of the softest goat suede and a hemp cord.
Best is to not do anything in particular and to let it age well. For cleaning just wipe the tin with a damp cloth.
