Malu Jute Placemat Set x 6 - Natural

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 natural 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.

    • Each placemat is 45 x 35cm / 18" x 14inches
  • - Plaited jute fibres & cotton
    - Each placemat is handwoven on wooden looms and the ends are hand stitched.
  • - Our placemats have been crafted to last however jute changes colour in the sun, so be sure to keep them clear of harsh rays.
    - To clean, we suggest you shake it outside to dislodge dirt or dust.
    - They are robust and will withstand condensation however for heavier water-based spills, blot with kitchen paper or an absorbent cloth as soon as possible and allow them to dry. Do not rub stains or spills from your placemat as this may spread the stain and loosen the jute fibres. For oil-based or coloured spills, please consult a specialist cleaning professional.
    - You may choose a protection treatment prior to using your table runner. We recommend MicroSeal who offer a DIY protection and cleaning kit suitable for jute fibres.
