Cotton Placemat Twin Set - French Paisley

$22.00

Inspiring natural tones of oatmeal, olive and salmon are perfect to accompany your dinning table. Alternatively you can spice it up with a linear dots and simple magenta flowers on the oatmeal cotton fabric of the other side.  

Each set includes two placemats.

It takes hours of careful hand stitching in even and straight rows to create this beautiful piece of work from repurposed saris. This ancient craft of kantha stitching has meant many saris have been recycled over the generations.

We think Basha's workmanship is some of the best from its region!

Basha brand icons at for Dignity; ending exploitation, eco friendly, fair trade and handcrafted

Dimensions: 33 x 45 cm 

SKU B18-KPMC

Colour and Pattern: Because we know that you like to the details about each set, we have made an effort to capture all the colours and patterns. The fabric is recycled cotton so it is very soft and has the endearing signs of some fading. In areas of thinning cotton, the tradition is to carefully sew a  patch from the same sari over this portion and a placemat may feature this workmanship.

As they are made from different sections of the overall sari, each placemat has its own make up of the patterns making it perfectly unique!  So if you would prefer to see more photos, please contact us, we would be happy to supply you with them.

Washing advice: These cotton placemats can be machine washed on a gentle, cold cycle. The close stitching help maintain the shape of the cloth. To extend the life of the placemat, we suggest you limit the number of washes and spot clean. The saris are washed before they are sewn and are washed again before shipping. They arrive soft, clean and beautiful.

This set of placemats has been kantha stitched by a Bengali woman who has now been restored from a high risk situation.   After twelve months of support and training she now has  safe work place which also provides supportive care for her family. Read more about Basha.
