Description

Make room at the table for sustainable style with this beautiful, natural placemat. 


Woven from ethically-sourced veta vera grass in Northern Ghana, this natural mat is made from robust veta vera grass – an indigenous raw material that’s sustainably sourced and perfect for producing durable baskets. The grass is hand-rolled before being woven by a skilled member of our partner weaving group in Northern Ghana. 

Most of the artisans in this collective are farmers first and foremost, but drought makes it increasingly difficult to live off the land. Weaving baskets and tableware empowers these people with the opportunity to earn a flexible second income. Each floor basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving co-operative.
