gifts of a lifetime

At upcyclingit, we're crazy about music, celebrity, classic movies, vintage photographs, stunning pictorials and cool ads from bygone eras. We love this stuff so much, we've spent years amassing the most unbelievable collection of old magazines and other printed relics we're now upcycling to create our one-of-a-kind, handcrafted coasters.

With a discerning focus on colour, art direction, iconography and - of course - pop culture, our graphically gorgeous, totally original coasters bring you something new, something old, something useful and something bold everyday.

Each coaster is made with obsessive love, original vintage paper (we never EVER copy a print), premium ceramic tile and top-quality felt - sanded to perfection and sealed with a food-safe varnish so your cold cocktail or hot mug will always have a fabulous place to go. We could write an opus about all their amazingness, but these babies speak best for themselves.

Oh, and tune in often (like really often) as we continue to collect, upcycle and handcraft new eye-popping originals all the time.

Oh, and also, if you're wondering who "we" are, we're Leah and Sam – two life-long friends, writers, editors and creative marketers who have spent much of our respective careers building other peoples' empires.
