Upgrade your table settings and bring some ethical style to the occasion with these beautiful round placemats, hand woven from indigenous lutindzi grass in rural Swaziland. A double border of white, wavy grass encircles each of these woven mats, framing a circle of undyed, natural woven fibre.
With a naturally waxy finish, lutindzi grass is perfect for tableware because it’s naturally water and stain-resistant. Available to purchase individually, these fair trade placemats look gorgeous arranged with our set of six white-rimmed coasters, as well as with our beautiful White Rim Bread Basket
A skilled craftswoman working within a Swazi weaving cooperative produced these placemats, in partnership with social enterprise Gone Rural Bomake. This organization now works with over 770 artisans across 53 communities spread over three regions of Swaziland: each group trained to specialise in a different craft that uses the unique natural materials available in their area. Since 1970, Gone Rural has been empowering women, supporting children and creating sustainable employment. You can meet the weavers from Swaziland here.
