Branching Out

Artists Elena and Sanver Kanidinc know that a tree growing in Brooklyn deserves to be celebrated, reclaimed, and recycled. Coated with a lustrous shellac glaze on one side and soapstone chalk on the other, these local tree branches have be salvaged to form a one-of-a-kind set of conversation-starting coasters.

Made entirely from natural and reclaimed materials, these eco-friendly dining accessories are perfect for jotting down guest names or personal messages before resting your ice water or freshly muddled cocktail. Handmade in New York.
