Ethically handwoven from lutindzi grasses in rural Swaziland, these exquisite round placemats boast a smoky grey coloured rim encircling a base of natural fibre. These can be purchased individually, and mixed and matched with our wider range of stunning Swazi tableware.
This wiry grass grows wild in the mountainous regions of Swaziland. Lutindzi is naturally waxy in nature which makes it water and stain-resistant and therefore ideal for tableware. We suggest pairing these round placemats with LAVUSIMO Winter and LAVUSIMO Heath bowls as well as our set of six matching coasters.
These baskets are carefully woven by craftswomen working within fair trade cooperatives in rural Swaziland. Purchasing one of these colourful woven baskets supports the ongoing work of Gone Rural Bomake, a not for profit organisation empowering 770 artisans all over the country with the training and the means to create beautiful handicrafts from the local materials available to them. This organisation works to improve local healthcare, education and sanitation through the provision of this sustainable employment. You can meet the weavers from Swaziland here.
