Ideal for everyday use with the family and for elevating your dining setting this season, the Malu Placemats will add a lovely textural touch to your table. Perfectly paired with linen, earthy tableware and sprig of foliage, the Malu set will also protect your tabletop from scratches and spills.
Both timeless and functional, this piece is handmade – from start to finish – by fair trade artisans in a rural village community of Bangladesh. The women first plait long strands of natural jute, and then weave the plaits together with charcoal cotton thread on wooden looms row by row, before stitching the ends using a needle and thread.
A genuine Fair Trade partnership ensures the women who weave our Malu Placemat Sets are paid fairly, provided with consistent work and safe working conditions, among a host of other benefits that are in keeping with the Ten Principles of Fair Trade.
Complete the look with our Malu Jute Table Runner in the same weave.
