Brooklyn Slate Co.
We love it when clever people re-purpose something into something useful or something beautiful and Brooklyn Slate is such a great example of that.
Co-founder Kristy Hadeka’s family has a quarry business (in upstate New York). One day on a visit she and her partner, Sean Tice, begin to imagine how these random pieces of slate could be the start of something big. And Brooklyn Slate was born.
They craft items like cheese boards, place mats, coasters, even garden markers, all from pieces of upstate slate. Every piece is hand-cut and cleaned so no two pieces are alike. It’s funny to think that a piece of slate can add warmth, but it really does. Food looks better, cheese especially, on these pieces.
Make sure to click on their movie when you visit their website. It artfully tells their story.
Way to go Brooklyn Slate. We love your idea and appreciate how you have brought it to life. Well done.
