What is a Leather Valet Tray?

A leather valet tray, also called a catchall tray,  is used to contain all the accoutrements that a person may carry on his or her person.  For example, daily carry items may include a cell phone, change, receipts, a pocket knife, a wallet, guitar picks, a flashlight, keys, a lighter, a watch, etc.   Now items like this are typically referred to as EDC or every-day carry items.

“I can’t find my keys!”

How many of us struggle with finding car keys every morning?  Using a leather valet tray could be the solution to this never ending search for the keys.  A catchall tray could be placed by the door making an easy and stylish place to safely keep car keys.

Here at Duvall Leatherwork, we prefer to handcraft valet trays to have a ridged, firm body.  If the tray is ridged it can support the weight of the contents if the tray is moved.
