My husband and I have always hated putting our silverware or chopsticks on a bare tabletop when eating out and we were frustrated with stains on 0ur table linens following a dinner party.
Browsing through many table decoration ideas and table setting products, I saw silverware rests made of glass, porcelain , etc. This made me think “Why can’t silverware and chopstick rests be made of a more portable and disposable material?”. Hence, the product REST-it was created.

- REST-it has many different themes; each theme has 8 different conversation starter sayings or statements.
- REST-its are portable, reusable and disposable.
