Woven Placemat With Fringes
This product is currently sold out.
Crafted by the artisans from the Luangwa Artisan Collective, this one-of-a-kind round placemat with fringes looking like tassles is made from natural grass that surrounds our local community here in Zambia. Handwoven and modern, these placemats effortlessly complement any table setting.
The artisans from Luangwa Artisan Collective are independent artisans that work out from Tribal Textiles, and all sale proceeds go directly to them and their families. We train those local artists in product development and business skills such as merchandising, accounting and pricing. We work with them to create beautiful products and give them access to local and international wholesale markets. We built for them an all-weather work and market place on Tribal Textiles ground, where they can sell to visitors.
While the design and technique are the same, each artisan has his own way of weaving, making each piece unique in its own special way.

While I do love the placemats, I was disappointed in the size of them. When I place my dinner plates on them you can’t see the fringes. The placemats’ size reminds me more of a hot pad size than placemat. I would use them for a table setting if only they were bigger.
