Red Perspex Pomegranate Napkin Holders/Coasters, Set of 4
The ruby red pomegranate design evocates Israel during the Rosh Hashanah season when every market is piled high with gorgeous jewel red pomegranates.
It is customary in Israel to eat pomegranate at the Rosh Hashanah meal, as each of the seeds represents one of the 613 commandments we are to follow. Of course, the pomegranate is also one of the seven species of the land of Israel mentioned in the Bible, making this design as meaningful as it is beautiful.
Barbara Shaw has made wonderfully versatile red pomegranate coasters that double as napkin holders from durable, sturdy Perspex plastic. These smooth, easy-to-use coasters/napkin holders will bring a feeling of joyful festivity to your dining table.
Perspex can withstand temperatures up to 150 degrees Celcius (300 degrees Fahrenheit), making them equally useful for hot and cold drinks.
- Handmade with love and care in Jerusalem
- 9 x 10.5 cm / 3.5 X 4 inches

Barbara Shaw was born in Sydney, Australia, and made the bold decision to follow her heart and move to Israel in 1986.
Barbara has an incredible eye for color and design. When looking for unique, made-in-Israel gifts, she discovered that what she was looking for did not exist. She immediately went to work and designed bright, uniquely Israeli aprons, dish towels, and tote bags that she could give as gifts.
In 2008 she formally established her business. She expanded her line to include designs on ceramics, serving-ware, wood, glass, stationary, perspex, baby gifts, a Yiddish line, and t-shirts.
Barbara’s goal is to create beautiful, practical modern items that capture the spirit of Israel. Her tag line is “Jewish gifts that smile;) And it is hard to imagine not feeling joyful when looking at her functional art.
Barbara’s diverse team, which now includes her son Boaz, who is working on business development with his mom, is committed to excellence. All of Barbara’s gorgeous creations are made in her Jerusalem workshop.
