The Corktown Coasters

Assorted colors

When car seats are turned into coasters, your drink always has the best seat in the house. 

Each Corktown Coaster set comes with 4 coasters handmade in Detroit by our team of Veterans and Detroiters, with leather upcycled from the American auto industry. We unite this durable leather with cork crafted from leftover wine bottles and upcycled natural rubber.  We then proudly hand-emboss our logo on each coaster.
It’s a great gift that smells like a new car -- because it nearly was!

Story behind the Name: “Corktown” is not only one of the oldest neighborhoods in Detroit but is one of the first places where a “Pingree potato patch” popped up. Detroit Mayor Hazen Pingree gave 430 acres of land and seeds to Detroiters to grow their own food during the nationwide depression of 1893.  We honor his commitment to service above self with these coasters.

Your coaster is crafted with small batch leather reclaimed from the production of new cars. So, your Corktown Coasters may have a texture and shade that varies slightly from the leather pictured.

I absolutely love the coasters and this company. My fav.

Susan Sincissen A great place to shop. A great place to shop for leather goods. Many things to choose from. I very much appreciate the "reduce, reuse, recycle" philosophy. First purchase was the set of four Corktown coasters = four different colors and well-made. Would be a nice gift for someone. Second purchase just made is the computer mouse pad = have not yet received, but I know it will be up to my expectations and beyond! The website is easy to use with lots of great pictures of the many items and very detailed descriptions of them. I know what I will receive before making a purchase. Check out this website. You will be impressed!

You just made our day. So happy you like your Corktown Coasters and excited to get you your Motor City Mouse Pad very soon! Thanks for being the difference Susan.
