From our family run business in Ireland we offer a range of handcrafted high quality slate tableware products, ranging from slate trays and slate tablemats to slate coasters and slate clocks.
The Hammond Family have been Slate Craftsmen since the 18th Century. Their trade was based on the traditional use of slate, roofing the colleges, and churches of Ireland.
The founder of Slated grabbed a few pieces of slate for use as all purpose boards in the home. They found a number of purposes for the slate - as trivets for tea kettles and hot dishes to coasters for beers - and began gifting pieces to friends. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that Slated was born to produce a line of slate products.
Each slate is carefully chosen. In order to achieve the rough look of our pieces, we carve the product by hand with a traditional slating knife.
The end result is a product completely unique in cut, shape, colour, and overall presentation.
