Teacher Heart Leather Catchall
This leather catchall is a wonderful thank you gift for a teacher -- a thoughtful item that will be both useful and beautiful on their desk. It is sure to make them smile and serve as a constant reminder of how important their work is and how appreciated they are!
A NOTE FROM THE SHOP OWNERS
Growing up, we both were fortunate to have some very special teachers during our academic journeys, who we still think of very fondly. As parents, we have also witnessed the positive impact an awesome teacher has had for our child. Furthermore, Karl has been a teacher since 2007, so we know firsthand how hard teachers work and how much they care about their students. Because of our love for teachers, this catchall design is offered at a 20% discount from our normal pricing. We hope this makes it possible for more people to show their gratitude to teachers!
This laser-engraved design features the phrase: "It takes a big heart to shape little minds." Beneath the main phrase is an apple and heart design and a final "Thank you" line which you will personalize with the teacher's name. (If you would also like us to include the school year -- e.g.: 2021-2022 -- in a smaller font at the bottom, feel free to request that as well.)
Please note that laser-engraving may have a dark brown or black tone to it, depending on the color of leather selected. See our “Laser-Engraved Color Examples” for sample representations of how engraving looks on each leather color option.

We use premium full-grain, veg-tanned Italian leather for our catchalls. The leather thickness for all sizes is 5 ounces and it has a medium firmness. There is a somewhat rustic-looking texture with slight variegation to the color tone across the surface of the leather. Each piece of leather is unique and may exhibit a different “pattern” or markings. As noted above, color may vary slightly due to variations in screens and leather.
The process we use to shape our catchalls is called wet forming. It results in the leather having a somewhat more firm feel and becoming slightly stiff. It will hold its shape but is still a bit pliable if you attempt to manipulate it with your hands. The wet forming method enables the tray to maintain its shape without the use of rivets. As each catchall is formed by hand, there may be slight variations in the final shape.
The leather is finished with a satin resin which gives a slight sheen to the surface while offering some protection and added durability for the piece, helping to ensure its longevity. We also burnish the edges of the catchalls to give them a smooth, finished appearance.
All catchalls are made-to-order. Orders ship within 3-5 business days via USPS First Class Mail or you may upgrade the shipping method at checkout. Tracking information will be provided at time of shipment.
