Both timeless and functional, the Jute Placemat Set (x 8) adds a touch of natural beauty to any table.
Handmade – from start to finish – by fair trade artisans in remote, rural communities of Bangladesh, each one is assembled by plaiting long threads of jute; coiling them into shape; then stitching the layers together using needle and thread.
They're bundled them up in a handy lidded basket, so they also sit pretty on your sideboard, and pair perfectly with our Round Jute Coasters. Let's eat!
Placemats: 30cm round
Basket with lid: 35cm round x 11cm tall
The Dharma Door has been commissioning the incredible skills of female artisans in remote, rural communities since 2004. Their ultimate goal is to genuinely empower as many people as possible out of the cycle of poverty.
By working with not-for-profit NGOs on the ground, and keeping a close eye on what their customers enjoy, they have developed an approach that honours both artisans and buyers.
While they focus on new concepts, marketing and the distribution of their products, other NGO partners support the artisans who make them. We areThey are constant contact with each group – particularly with the field leaders who help them to reach the level of quality and skill they are now well known for.
