MASALA CHAI KIT
After stumbling upon old ledgers of East India Company merchant ships, I was inspired to create a fictitious company called Scout Spices, named after a 17th century merchant ship.
I branded the company with an old-world theme and a nod to a nautical past, emulating how spices were once transported and packaged. The five masala chai spices are packaged in triangular bottles with old-world materials like cork, twine, and sealing wax. I also created a handmade solid mahogany case, finished with linseed oil, as both a practical and beautiful way to store the spices. Also included is a spice guide booklet describing the origins and usages of each spice.
