Banksia Pod Coasters

These Banksia Pod Coasters are amazingly porous in nature.  They soak up any condensation from your glass, protect your surfaces and are their own little piece of natural Australian art. Each and every one is completely individual.

The Plant
The Banksia grandis is a prolific and distinctive banksia tree found in the south west of Western Australia. This variety grows particularly large at a height of 5-15 metres and the large cylindrical yellow flowers reach up to 35cm long. It takes 24 months from the time the tree produces the flower to the time the banksia nut reaches maturity and is suitable for picking. The fact that the tree re-grows its pods over time makes the banksia an incredibly renewable resource.

Responsibility and sustainability
The collection of the Banksia grandis is highly regulated by the Department of Parks and Wildlife Western Australia. The seed pods collected have expelled their seeds and have completed the lifecycle of the plant. They are carefully handpicked to ensure no damage is done to the tree itself or the Australian bushland and only 10% of the banksia seed pods can be collected in any one area at a time.
