A Silkwood Traders Picasso wooden lacquer coaster set starts life as a tree from managed plantations which after being harvested is turned into a wood composite fibreboard. Each coaster and its box is hand-painted and layer upon layer of lacquer applied over a period of several months. In between each layer of lacquer, the item is left to dry, sanded back and then another layer applied giving a beautiful shine and depth of colour. It also results in a strong and robust finish which can withstand most bumps and drops. But always better to be safe than sorry so we always advise to handle with care. After all, they took three months to make!
Each Picasso wooden lacquer coaster set comes with a matching lidded lacquer box in the same design. A silk covered gift box adds the finishing touch (while stocks last – UPDATE – we are so sorry but we’ve now run out of silk gift boxes for this item. Your coasters will be packaged inside a strong, plain white cardboard box) . An information card about how lacquerware is made is also included.
The coasters are suitable for hot or cold drinks. Just wipe clean and dry with a lint free cloth as required. Each coaster is foam backed to protect surfaces. Dimensions of each coaster are: 10cm x10cm x 0.3cm.
