Julia barnard // Explores the Beaten Track

Hello, I'm Julia, the founder of Boxes of Babylon. I have been fortunate to truly explore the world over the years: from Kenya to India, from Bhutan to Europe and all the amazing places in our own backyard. I want to share my experiences and the talents of the unique artisans I have come across. What's more, I want to transform them into meaningful gift giving.


Boxes of Babylon aims to provide evocative and meaningful moments, akin to a child's anticipation at finding a favourite at the bottom of their lolly bag, an explorer discovering an exotic and unmarked location; or an archaelogist revealing the treasures of kings and queens past. What better gift to give someone that experience?


Our team has travelled the world to bring you the bespoke, the distinctive and the inspirational. We look forward to unlocking the best in global design to inspire your gift giving, and are so very excited to bring you Boxes of Babylon in 2015.
