Brooklyn Slate Company uses unused slate remnants from its 3rd generation family quarry to craft slate tableware pieces, with its main product being cheese boards. Established in 2009, Brooklyn Slate Company is one of the largest purveyors of American-made slate products, which are sourced from the New York/Vermont Slate Valley. Slate is one of the most durable stones which are naturally occurring. The New York/Vermont Slate Valley is world famous for producing slate which is used on residential, industrial, and commercial properties, such as roofs that can last for two hundred years or more. Because their slate is sourced naturally, the Brooklyn Slate Company’s products are unique in cut, shape, and color.
