Basemat

protective leather apron for the HG-1

Blacksmiths, cobblers, and glass blowers share a similar tool, the ubiquitous leather apron. Serving a dual role, an apron both protects and keeps an artisan clean. The Basemat for the HG-1 grinder serves the same purpose. Not only does it protect the grinder from unexpected knocks and dings, it also catches stray grounds making clean up faster and easier.

The Basemat is designed to protect the base of the HG-1 grinder while using the Blind Tumbler or other dosing tools. Like the craftsman’s apron, the Basemat is made from an extra thick 4mm, durable cow hide that develops its own individual character over time. With drips and spills come a wonderful patina that gives leather its unique appeal.
