Why we love these CoastersThese coasters are ethically crafted and locally sourced, and the artisans use natural fibers and organic dyes to sustainably make them. Your purchase works towards alleviating poverty and unemployment in East Africa while supporting artisans in their pursuit of greater things.
Avoid soaking, if spilled on and soaked, ensure to pat dry and air out, or mold could build up and the natural dyes could run.
Made of natural fibers and grass; do not submerge in water. If necessary, use a damp cloth to wipe or spot clean. Avoid using chemicals or detergents.
Due to being all natural fibers, keep dyed products out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural fading. All natural products with little or no coloring do well in direct sunlight.
