These placemats are meticulously handwoven by skilled artisans in a range of natural fibers including jute and espadín, an agave fiber. The resulting natural coarseness gives these placemats a durable texture. The colors of the fibers were chosen to complement the natural, earthy tones of our Winter Seasonal collection. Understated and textural they pair naturally with the exposed clay of some of the unglazed dinnerware from the collection. They're Perfect for daily use, intimate gatherings, and low key entertaining.
