Industrial Felt Coasters
Producing the handles for a few of his other pieces — namely, the Tote and Winepocket — left Josh Jakus with large numbers of leftover felt rounds, which just happened to be the perfect size and shape for coasters.
We love the fact that this item is a waste product (cutouts) from a waste product (industrial wool felt is itself made from factory excess wool). We also love the way the coasters are presented: the set of 6 is linked by a single seam of heavy orange thread. Simply cut them apart to use them; the stitched stripe remains.
Materials: 100% industrial wool felt, nylon stitching. (Industrial felt is made from approximately 85% factory excess wool and 15% mixed fibers.)
