I am very impressed with the looks of these coaster. The appearance is elegant and the fact that they are made of bamboo is a big bonus. It seems to me that all my bamboo items i own are a very nice quality as these are as well and very durable. I like the different color tones which is very appealing and the grooves which when my glass of cold water is set on it , the moisture goes into the grooves instead of staying on the bottom of my glass and when i pick it up it now doesn’t drip all over the place from condensation. Plus these will protect my furniture from water or other beverage rings ,stains and from heated drinks. Not only are these appealing but they actually match my light colored wood in my home. I really like the looks and the feel of these coasters as well as the strong material and quality. I am very thrilled and pleased with the set of bamboo coasters.
