Handwoven Placemat - Round

Handmade in Anegundi, India

  • Crafted by the Basket Weavers of Karnataka

    Add natural texture to your table! This placemat is 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. Natural materials means that each mat has its own unique color variations.

    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.
