These gorgeous, lightweight place mats are handmade from woven seagrass and finished with a colourful jute rim and are the perfect way to bring a splash of colour to your table setting. They are sold individually, so you keep it simple and create a uniform place mat set or mix and match the colours to create a unique, colourful and vibrant place mat set. Keep the eclectic and unique theme running by introducing the matching coasters, baskets and bowls to your individual table setting too!
These placemats are sustainable and eco friendly as the are created using jute plants which are easy to grow, have a high yield per acre and, unlike cotton, have little need for pesticides and fertilisers.
The fibres lie beneath the bark around the woody core. To extract the fibre, the jute bundles are submersed in water and left for a few days until the fibres come loose and are ready for stripping from the stalk, then washed and dried.
Jute plants help to clean the air. During growth they take in three times more CO2 than the average tree, converting this CO2 into oxygen. Jute plants also enrich the soil. As these plants grow fast, they are often used in crop rotation. The leaves and roots left after harvest enrich the soil with micronutrients, maintaining soil fertility. Jute is 100% biodegradable.
Seagrass is a renewable, sustainable and biodegradable material. Seagrasses grow very quickly in shallow saltwater along coastlines and rivers. Once mature the grasses are cut by hand and dried in the sun, then hand twisted and woven. The dried seagrass is durable and moisture-resistant. It has natural colour variations which makes every creation unique.
Our tablemats use natural seagrass and also coloured jute. This coloured jute is 100% Azo free.
