A Silkwood Traders metallic red 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 red metallic wooden lacquer coaster set comes with a matching lidded lacquer box in the same design. Packaged in a plain white cardboard box (we regret the complimentary handmade silk covered gift boxes are no longer available for this item. ) An information card about the lacquerware process is also enclosed.
The wooden 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.
