There are so many beautiful uses for leather in the kitchen! Leather is such a beautiful, durable, and useful material and it really shines in the kitchen or bar. Leather is not only incredibly versatile but also provides the perfect touch of understated luxury for your home. Let’s chat about all the fantastic ways we can use handcrafted leather products to level up our kitchen game!
Leather coasters are an age old staple in your local bar. And they can be gorgeous on your own kitchen table, as well! Trust me, these little pieces of handcrafted leather are more than just something to rest your cup of morning coffee on. Typically made of 10-12 ounce leather, they will protect your table from scratches and water stains. They’re also super fun to customize – with your logo if you’re a bar or with a favorite quote for the home kitchen! Did you know that the hobby of collecting coasters is called tegestology? Talk about a cool conversation starter! Leather coasters are the perfect way to beautify and protect your table.
Trivets are another way to let the leather shine in the kitchen. Say so long to that ugly, dated trivet or, gasp, the kitchen-towel-as-trivet! Lovely vegetable tanned leather will protect your table from the heat of a dish, while sitting beautifully on your table. And don’t forget that amazing patina – your trivet and coasters will gain vintage charm with time and use!
And lastly, maybe my favorite leather kitchen product – the cast iron pot holder! These things are like magic. Slip it on the handle and basically don’t think about it again. They’re beautiful and functional, as the leather stays cool to the touch. Every day, I fry my kids eggs and then grab the hot pan to take it to the sink and clean. The handle is never more than slightly warm.
Just don’t leave them on when you put the pan in the oven. You’ll be sorry – just ask my kids!
So there you have it, my favorite uses for leather in the kitchen. Custom leather coasters, handcrafted leather trivets, and leather cast iron potholders – each one a testament to the beauty, durability, and practicality of handcrafted leather. Leather goods are an investment that not only lasts but also adds a touch of elegance and functionality to your kitchen.
What’s more, gifting sustainable leather goods like these can be a thoughtful gesture. Got a friend who’s a culinary wizard or a family member who’s always hosting? A set of custom leather coasters or a stunning leather trivet would make a perfect gift. Not only are these gifts practical and beautiful, but they’re also an eco-friendly choice, allowing your loved ones to enjoy luxury while staying conscious of the environment.
At the end of the day, incorporating leather goods into your kitchen is a great way to blend functionality with aesthetics. Their durability ensures they’ll stand up to daily use, while their timeless charm enhances the beauty of your space. They’re an ode to your commitment to sustainability and a reflection of your excellent taste. So why not give it a try? Let’s make our kitchens not just places of nourishment, but also a showcase of sustainable luxury. After all, who says you can’t have a dash of style while whipping up your famous lasagna or that mouthwatering chocolate soufflé?
