Crafted by the Lambadis of Tamil Nadu
We used a traditional Surya, or "sun," motif to decorate this otherwise simple linen placemat. A special wash gives this placemat a soft feel and "shabby chic" look, something different from our otherwise sleek linen pieces. Pair these with our Surya Napkins to complete the look.
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.
** Sold individually
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.
