Crafted by the Lambadis of Tamil Nadu
A casual interpretation of floral trellis patterns found in temple designs, this piece combines several of the artisans' different stitches in one design. A pretty bordered table runner for any occasion, we also produced this piece in another color combination – adding a beige touch to an otherwise all cream design.
Use these instead of placemats and pair them with our Simplified Trellis Napkins for a well styled table.
It takes a several days to complete each piece. While the design and technique are the same, each artisan has her own way of applying each stitch, making each piece unique in its own special way.
The Lambadi artisans are part of a group of around 50 women. Each woman works out of the comfort of her own home, allowing her to maintain a work-life balance.
We recommend using a mild detergent and warm water (40°) in the gentle cycle of your machine. Pull slightly to shape and line dry. Iron on the linen setting.
