The first of the JF Zero Waste Collection. We save all of our fabric scraps from the Jean Franklin clothing line and upcycle them into other sustainable pieces like these handmade rag rug style coasters.
First, we make large ball of yarn out of fabric scraps from our jumpsuits, dresses, and tops, and then hand crochet a round coaster with deadstock twine. Each coaster is unique and requires close attention to detail to get the twine and fabric spacing just right.
These coasters have a 5" diameter and are perfect for protecting your coffee table while holding a coffee mug, wine or water glass. Made from deadstock fabric scraps - blue denim, and twine. Each coaster is hand-made in Los Angeles. Available as a set of 4.
Care Directions: Spot clean with warm water and dish soap; Take to a professional green dry cleaner periodically.
Zero Waste & Sustainability
With every purchase you save beautiful unused (deadstock) fabric from being carted off to landfills by other fashion brands. These fabrics are only available in small quantities, keeping your item unique and never mass-produced. And you’ve cut out all the water and energy usage typical of new fabric production. You're helping us create a zero waste business by purchasing pieces like this rag rug made from fabric scraps. Which means zero waste from your purchase ends up in a landfill.
Everyone at Jean Franklin is paid fairly. In return, you get lovingly crafted pieces created right here in Los Angeles.
