This collection of eco-friendly trivets and coaster sets feature a simple, stitched cross or ‘x’ pattern — the “Cruz Collection.”
This item is a set of one trivet and two coasters — perfect for a small tea party. Select your colour preference from the drop-down menu box.
The organic/irregular shaped, MEDIUM SIZE trivet is roughly 5.75″ x 5.25″ and the pair of coasters are roughly 4.25″ in diameter. All are made from a single layer of 3mm (1/8″) 90% industrial wool felt made in Ontario or colourful European 100% wool felt. Your trivet-coaster set may not look exactly like the one in the photograph but will be close.
Each one unique. None the same.
I was inspired in part to keep all the felt offcuts — besides the fact the felt is so dear — by Ray Anderson, CEO of Interface, an American rug manufacturer who, in the seminal 2003 documentary The Corporation, talked about reclaiming the wasted roll ends of carpets to make more beautiful carpets. By doing this they reduced the amount of petroleum that had to be pulled from the earth and saved their company money all at the same time. That’s eco-logic. Waste not, want not.
