Drinks coasters – so much more than just practical objects! Use yours to introduce texture and colour to your table or living room in the simplest way. Ethically handwoven from lutindzi grasses in rural Swaziland, these exquisite round coasters boast a smoky grey coloured rim encircling a base of natural fibre. These come in sets of six in a neat woven pot with a lid and can be mixed and matched with our wider range of stunning Swazi tableware.
The wiry grass used to produce these drinks coasters grows wild in the mountainous regions of Swaziland. Lutindzi is inherently waxy which makes it water and stain-resistant – the perfect material for sitting under mugs and glasses! Fancy extending the collection? These woven coasters look fab with LAVUSIMO Winter and LAVUSIMO Heath bowls as well as our matching placemats.
These stylish woven drinks coasters are carefully produced by craftswomen working within fair trade cooperatives in rural Swaziland. Purchasing one of these colourful woven baskets supports the ongoing work of Gone Rural Bomake, a not for profit organisation empowering 770 artisans all over the country with the training and the means to create beautiful handicrafts from the local materials available to them. This organisation works to improve local healthcare, education and sanitation through the provision of this sustainable employment. You can meet the weavers from Swaziland here.
