Fun Facts about (Drink) Coasters!

By Robert Bauer | September 20, 2019 |

What do you think about when someone says “coaster?” The ever-present drink coaster as we know them today has been around nearly 140 years!

A Brief History

In 1880 Friedrich Horn, a German printing company, designed the first cardboard beer mats, as they are sometimes called. Shortly after, the Robert Sputh Company of Dresden started making them out of wood pulp.

Today you can find drink coasters protecting tables and bars from condensation in nearly every bar, restaurant and home. They come in many materials, including wood, cardboard, bamboo, cork, marble, sandstone, slate and unglazed ceramics. The best drink coasters are porous and absorb condensation from the glass.
