Bierfilzl - Coasters from the good old days! Up to the late 19th century coasters made of wool felt were used in taverns across Bavaria. They not only soaked up any moisture but were also used to cover the glass while sitting in a beer garden on a beautiful summer day to keep out falling leaves and unwanted flying guests.
The invention of less expensive coasters made of paper around 1880 marked the end of felt coasters. Nevertheless, to this day Bavarians call coasters of all kinds "Bierfilzl" (beer felt).
In keeping with the old tradition our Bierfilzl have been recreated in 5mm thick, natural wool felt from Germany. They are handsome, sturdy, and durable, and are sure to protect your surfaces with timeless style.
