I was held over a barrel by my daughter to produce these cigar boxes as gifts for a movie director and producer of a movie that she was involved in. So I decided that as I had no choice, I might as well keep it as part of my product range.

Hanna Hoekom? You will have to translate for the rest of the world, boet!

Nice boxes! Churchhill would have loved one.
