Coasters have been around since 1880 and were first produced in Germany made out of wood pulp. The practice soon traveled to the U.K. where they were mass-produced and used as advertising for pale ale. Not much has changed since they're first creation, which goes to show that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
A little bit about our product creation...
All of our products are diligently handmade by H&D's local artisans in La Antigua, Guatemala. The durable leather is subtly fire-branded with our signature mark, the Owl. In Guatemala, owls (or 'tecos') are a harbinger of good fortune, which is why we at Hide & Drink want to offer you a continuous source of positive energy and good luck in your home.
The leather we use, originating from our multi-generational family owned supplier, is nothing but Full Grain Leather, the best you can get when it comes to leather. This type of leather comes from the top layer of the hide, and contains all of the grain, hence its name. It's the best leather than you can buy and Hide & Drink is its biggest fan. You can stop looking now, you've found the cream of the crop.
The tanning process is something that we take pride in. Our rustic leather is created through removing the hair, extracting the moisture, taking out the oils and, of course, the natural preservatives. The leather is placed in a large container filled with new oils, coloring and preservatives, and there it takes on its new color and thus its new personality. The finishing process consists of pressing the leather with heated plates, hung up to dry and sprayed and finished with a sealer. Finally, it is pressed once more and then ready for its transformation, in which it is carefully handcrafted by the diligent locals of La Antigua, Guatemala, where our workshop is located.
