DAKOTA DELUXE TRAVELER
"The best plein air box for pastel artists - lightweight, tough, and holds lots of pastels!"
Italian craftsmen produce the exquisite Dakota Deluxe Traveler pastel carriers to our specifications. Boxes are constructed of oiled, stain resistant beech wood, utilize finger joined corners and are fitted with high quality hardware and a leather handle. The lightweight and durable boxes are a briefcase design that offers pastel storage on both sides. Swivel latches secure removable panels that hold the pastels in place. We use memory foam in the bottom of the box and attached to the panels to gently cushion the pastels. Memory foam provides the ultimate in protection for your fragile pastels.
The interior of each box is divided into sections measuring 10 ½" x 3 ¼". The small box has 6 sections and the large box has 10 sections. Each section will easily hold 20 full size large sticks of pastel or many more half sticks. The Small box is a wonderful size if you want to be very compact and still have great carrying capacity, at least 120 full sticks and as many as 250 half sticks. The Large box can hold more than 200 full size pastel sticks. Both boxes offer quick and easy access - open up the box, remove the panels and you are ready to paint.
For compactness and portability the Small box is the way to go - put it in a backpack! If you need more pastels for a workshop, trip or just to keep your pastels organized in your studio, the Large box offers greater capacity along with the same ease of access.
NOTE: The Deluxe Traveler comes complete with memory foam. We sell the foam pieces seperately also for replacement or for your use in other boxes.
