These coasters are a great way to celebrate the Lowicz style of Polish Folk Art. Made from hardboard with a cork backing, this set of six coasters is not only stylish, but also functional.
The Lowicz Folk Art theme is a modern re-imagining of traditional Polish paper cutting designs. Colorful folk paper cuttings, fashionable in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century, became famous in Poland as a part of folklore art. Initially, they adorned peasant's chambers, only to become with time a folklore handicraft intended for sale.
The most prominent features of paper cuttings from the Lowicz region are the contrast of colors and the intricacy of its workmanship. The original patterns were cut out with sheep shears.
