We've decided to bring a slice of this Hong Kong heritage to a modern audience with our Tong Lou coasters. Made from Jesmonite, a gypsum composite, they are inlayed with one of four Chinese characters- Coffee “啡”, Tea “茶”, Wine "酒“, Beer ”啤“ and are fitted with a non-slip cork base.

Wander around the streets of old districts like Wan Chai, Sham Shui Po or Sheung Wan and you might catch a glimpse of old Hong Kong in the form of "tong lou 唐楼“, old Chinese residential buildings built before the 1960s. One of the most beautiful features of tong lou are the brightly colored terrazzo facades and banisters. Made of pigmented cement with white marble chips, they are an iconic part of old Hong Kong architecture.

Laser engraving service:
Optional- Add a laser engraved message to the cork base (limit 35 characters). Please provide us with your custom message via "message to seller" so that we can prepare the engraving.
