I built a wood topped stand up desk. My wife might say that I built it so I could get these desk pads. I ordered these pads to put on top of it--it's beautiful. I use the large pad for my keyboard and mouse, the medium one sits next to my phone and usually has a notepad on it. The mousepad, I use at home when I need to work there. I was hesitant to order the whole set, because I knew I only needed 2 of the 3, now that I have them--I'm glad I bought the set. So many people ask questions about it when they see them on my desk.

Since we had already driven down to the Southern Sierra Madres of Mexico, I figured why not stop into the little town of Santa Clara del Cobre, “The Copper Town”, to find out what everybody was talking about.
Now back home in Texas, I had my new office to create from scratch and I wasn’t about to let it look average. As I asked around for someone to make me some custom desk pieces. People pointed us over to a backstreet coppersmith workshop where they were pounding out the glowing lumps of copper straight out of the fire. It wasn’t long before I was the proud owner of a hammered copper in and out paper tray, an envelope holder, a business card holder, a letter opener and a pen holder. They couldn’t have been more perfect.
They fit PERFECTLY on my old worn wooden desk, but still something was missing. It needed leather. Well, that’s how these came about. I’ve always appreciated sets of 3’s, the divine number of perfection, and know that things just feel right to me if they’re arranged in triangles. And so when I laid down my newly designed leather desk pad, monitor pad and mouse pad and saw the wood, leather and old copper together, I knew the office was then complete.
