Lux: Katagami Vintage Flowers
Enjoy the aesthetic of this coaster, crafted from birch and leather with an expertly hand printed paper mounted atop.
LUX coasters are lined with beautiful 4mm thick chestnut brown bison leather, embossed with the VPCo logo.
These coasters are made using a single sheet of hand printed paper, so whilst they share the master pattern, the particular piece of paper used to cover this coaster will show its own unique part of that pattern. This is why we list each coaster separately as no two are exactly the same.
The print is sealed with layers of protective, marine-grade yacht varnish and the practicality of thick, luxurious cowhide leather on the back of the coaster ensures a sophisticated presence and an added protective touch for any tabletop.
Surface Print: Vintage Flowers - a relief print made on olive painted VPCo handmade paper with a Katagami print of chrysanthemum over, printed in our Stromness workshop. This is our most popular design, taken from a carved woodblock pattern originating in 18th century Europe.
Katagami are handcut Japanese paper stencils made in the 18/19th centuries. They were used to apply patterns onto fabric using a dye resist method. We've reprised these wonderful designs by converting the patterns into relief plates which can then produce handmade prints onto paper, cloth, vellum and sometimes leather.
