Cowhide Coasters

Below are drink coasters made of cowhide for sale.

It's worth mentioning that most cowhide coasters are hair-on-hide; that is, the hair has been left on them. Sometimes, though, you can find coasters called "cowhide" that have had the hair removed. Neither definition (hair-on-hide or hair removed) is right or wrong: It's simply a matter of how different people describe them.

What Are Coasters Used For?

A coaster, also called a "drink coaster" is used under drinking glasses (or some other type of drinking vessel). It's purpose is to proctect furniture, tablecloths, or other surface from the bottom of the drinking glass.

Coasters help prevent wear-and-tear on furniture, and also help prevent damage from minor spills or condensation.

Coasters are made from a wide variety of materials, including cowhide like the ones on this page. In some cases, napkins are used as coasters, as are saucers.

Why Are Coasters Called, Well, Coasters?

Historians tell us that the first known coasters were in use in the 1700s. At that time, they were commonly used for decanters or wine bottles. Items placed on the coaster could then be easily slid, or coasted, around the table.

Save The Coasters For Later

If you find cowhide coasters you like on Etsy but you're not ready to purchase them right away, you can always add them to your shopping cart so they will be easy to find later.

Important: Putting an item in your Etsy shopping cart or "Save for later" list does NOT reserve it! It just makes it easier to find if it's still in stock when you come back.
