Hand Woven Coaster Set

These beautifully hand-woven coasters blend with both casual and formal settings.  The water-vine used to construct this product grows in mountain jungles on remote islands in the South Pacific.  It is difficult to reach and challenging to harvest, but grows back quickly, leaving no damage in these ecologiocally sensitive forests.  At just under 1/8" diamter -- barely one-fourth as thick as typical rattan - the water-vine is time consuming to weave but yields a substantially more durable, heat resistant and elegant product.  An artisan wove and finished this product entirely by hand.  Earnings from weaving help lift this craftsman and his or her family out of subsitience living, and provide them with better food, healthcare, and transportation.  A substantial amount of the profit from these products is invested back into these villages to further improve education and sanitation.
• Hand woven
• Set includes 6 coasters and a holder
