Novel Designs is a new business comprised of a group of five students from Henderson High School who as part of the Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme have made the aim to produce and sell a product.

We are a group of students who are passionate about the environment and want to assist in shaping a better future for our planet. Our product is a Wooden Book Box, this is a biodegradable, recyclable, and environmentally friendly alternative to your everyday plastic folder that instead of taking 1000's of years to decompose only takes 2. Our Wooden Book Box is a product that can be used to not only protect books and/or documents, it can also be used to preserve and hold personal items such as pictures, jewellery or keepsakes. Our book boxes have the ability to be customised in terms of personalised designs on the cover.

The name ‘Novel’ originated from the idea of our book box looking like a Novel with the meaning of a fictitious prose narrative of book length. As well as meaning the quality of being new, original, or unusual like a novelty. We were drawn to the idea of being considered unique with our product being an innovative yet practical way of promoting sustainability and environmental awareness.
