Trivets & Coasters
Trivets & coasters are very popular and commonly used in Portugal. Several varieties are available in many designs. Most commonly found are the traditional combined cork and tile version. The tile is normally hand painted and set in the middle of a cork base. The tile usually depicts the typical ‘azulejo’ theme of the traditional Portuguese blue and white tile design that is found throughout Portugal.
Other varieties include varied shaped cork trivets attached with rope such as the sardine shaped cork trivet that we sell on our website. These are available in several sizes. Also available are modern and vibrant coloured glass tiled coasters or beautiful patterned designs on vinyl. Many are finished with a cork backing.
Cork is used very widely in Portugal as it is one of the main providers of cork in the world. It is a very good conductor of heat and provides great protection from very hot pots and dishes which makes them a great addition to the dining table when serving meals direct from the oven.
