  • Crafted by the Basket Weavers of Karnataka

    Sold as a set of 4 Placemats + 4 Napkin Rings 

    These napkin rings and placemats are made from natural banana plant fiber gathered from the various banana plantations that surround the artisans' village. The fiber is hand rolled into rope used to crochet these durable pieces. Each napkin ring and placemat has unique color variations due to the natural materials used.

    The artisans from this small cooperative work out of their community center or gather in comfortable places around their village. Aside from the financial benefits that the work brings them, the women benefit from the sense of community their work brings them. From picking the banana fibers to hand weaving each product, the various steps involved mean each piece takes several days to make.
