Our coasters are produced using the very finest Welsh slate. It is sourced from Blaenau Ffestiniog where it has been quarried, sawn into blocks and split by hand. The mud and silt which forms this slate was laid down during Ordovician geological period, approximately 450 million years ago.
The designs we put onto our slateware are only ever sandblasted, (they are NEVER printed, painted or put through a laser etcher). We believe that the finest quality slate deserves to be engraved by a skilled craftsman, not a computer. Every one of our engraved coasters is produced individually, so we can ensure the best quality product will take pride of place on your table.
Due to the fact that all our coasters are produced individually, we are more than happy to engrave custom designs just for you. We don’t require bulk orders and our minimum order for custom work is just 4 coasters, although these can all feature different designs.
