Set of six beautiful leather coasters with a series of motifs depicting the British countryside painted and embossed on them. The set consists of one each of dog rose, foxglove, bindweed, poppy, angelica and honeysuckle.
The motifs are hand drawn onto the leather, and then the details carved with a knife. Special embossing tools are used to stamp the 3D effect, and then the motif is finished off by applying a leather dye. This is quite a time-consuming process, which is reflected in the price of this item, but the very uniqueness of them makes them a perfect gift.
These coasters are made from veg-tanned natural tooling leather. The leather starts off a cream colour but will develop a tan patina with use and exposure to sunlight. The coasters have been coated with a light polymer - this helps them to resist small amounts of liquid being spilt on them. We spent ages testing different coatings, and this one was the best in retaining the lovely look and feel of leather, while offering the best resistance. Over time the coasters will naturally pick up marks from glasses and mugs, but this only adds to the rustic, well-loved feel of these items.
Coasters each measure 10cm x 10cm (4inch x 4inch).
These items can be gift-wrapped (using brown paper and raffia) to make a perfect gift. Please add a comment if you would like this option - there is no extra charge for gift-wrapping.
I love nature and the countryside, and I love drawing plants. So it seemed natural to put these pictures onto a set of coasters. I have tried a number of flowers, including daisy and violet, but settled on these six for this set as they depict a nice range of habitats.
