Making a Bad Habit Good
Our Tobacco Lath Nesting Tables are comprised of a minimalist metal base and reclaimed pine tobacco lath sticks.
Here's how it works: After cut tobacco plants have wilted, the large stems are poked through with a metal tip attached to a thin piece of wood called a "lath" until there are six or eight plants on the stick. The metal tip is then removed and placed on another tobacco lath and the procedure starts all over again. When "stringing" the tobacco plants, the lath can either be propped upright against the ground, or held on a framework called a "horse" for drying.
So that's the history and you can see how cool they look in stylish room setting. To order, you can click right here and buy them from Anthropologie.
