- a white luxury finished carton box;
- with a drawer feature;
- containing a red cotton lid (“label”) to open the drawer;

- the Snake logo is featured in the leather part, at the beginning and the end of the belt
- a red cotton label is featured on the side of the leather part, at the beginning and the end of the belt
