Leather Cocktail Coasters - Pack of 4
A pack of four Leather Cocktail Coasters made from premium Italian vegetable tanned cowhide - offcuts from I.E. Francis's incredible Loop Pendants.
These elegant little 7.5cm coasters will look great on your dining table or coffee table - and they stack beautifully too!
The Leather Coasters will absorb moisture and show marks with use. But over time, the many watermarks will come together in a really beautiful pattern. You can spray the coasters with a waterproofing spray if you want to keep the light colour for longer - but don't get too attached to it as even ambient sunlight will darken this leather into a nice patina.
Edges are beveled and left raw.
Size: 7.5 cm circles, 1mm thick leather
Material: Vegetable Tanned Leather (Italy)
Made in: Melbourne by I.E. Francis
The Story Behind It

Isaac goes to great lengths to ensure his manufacturing materials are sourced locally whenever possible. I.E. Francis mainly uses premium vegetable-tanned kangaroo leather from a tannery in Sydney, selected for its toughness, beautiful finish and abundant local supply. For almost five years, Isaac has designed and hand-manufactured high quality, minimalist leather small goods in-house.
