Degas Pastel Box - This box was designed to hold four Port-A-Boxes. It has two sides that hold two Port-A-Boxes in place with or without their covers on. For travel you'll want to keep the boxes closed but when you're working you can easily remove the Port-A-Boxes through the side of the box which is held in place with magnets. Once you have removed the Port-A-Boxes you can uncover them to expose the pastels and either work with them outside the box or simply slide back into the travel box uncovered. This provides you many possibilities for working with your pastels so it can adapt to your needs.
Designed for many years of carefree use the leather handle and shoulder strap will stand up to a lifetime of use. The leather handle is easier to carry then plastic or metal handles and maintains its feel over the life of the box. Quite honestly there are many choices out there for your consideration. The Degas Pastel Box is the only one that allows your pastels to be covered completely during travel or for storage and makes it convenient to work with your pastels in the field or studio. Pastels are expensive and protecting your investment has never been easier.
