Bamboo & Rattan Tea Cup Coaster
This tea cup coaster contains beautiful weaving patterns and will protect surfaces from heat or condensation from a cup while looking great. The weaving work on this coaster is intricate and requires additional attention to detail by the artisan.
Hand woven in Vietnam in the workshops of Nguyen Van Tinh, stalks of bamboo and rattan are harvested, cured, and cut into strips. The thin strips of bamboo are expertly woven through the rattan stalks using intricate weaving methods. The artists' skill allows the creation of unique shapes and designs. Finally, the products are dipped in rubber tree sap, a natural, non-toxic preservative, before being dried and finished.
