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.

Corktown Coasters

Great looking and durable

Unique item

Loved the coasters- they are unique “character” pieces to have at tables. I think it’s neat they send a card inside to learn more about the person who made them.
