I have always hated putting my silverware on a bare tabletop when dining out AND I was always frustrated with stains on table linens following a dinner party.
After 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 these be made of a more portable material?". Hence, the idea of REST-it was born.
