Each element used to craft the coasters set, through its origins, colours and textures, is integral to the story. There is a choice of native timbers that takes you from tropical Queensland to the majestic Tasmania forests, and delicate inlays of Mother of Pearl or Abalone from its jewel seas.
Granites selected for the coasters, in colours from deepest ebony to silvery grey, represent the formation of an ancient land. They are ringed in gold or silver, a tribute to Australia’s vast mineral wealth, and cushion-backed in felt hand-made from finest Merino wool.
“They are designed to be beautiful, of course, but also practical and durable, so the owner will use them, enjoy the journey they represent and be inspired to further explore and experience this amazing place we call home,” David says.
Each set comes complete with a book that explains the journey and communicates the character at the core of the Australian identity.
