Crochet Coasters: Where did they come from?
Coasters were not originally designed for the home. In fact, they have a very European backstory. The first coasters were created in 1880 by a German printing company. These first coasters were produced for bars and were originally called “beer mats” and manufactured out of wood pulp. After that, a brewery in the UK began producing coasters to promote a pale ale. Coasters can also be traced back to the use of saucers with tea in Europe. It seems people have been invested and worried about protecting their tabletops for a long time. Today, beverage coasters are made out of all sorts of materials and DIY coasters can be found in just about any crafting niche, including crochet coaster patterns.
