Placemats style #5

This set of four placemats are made from a recycled cotton saris and are one of a kind!

Double sided, with a different sari print on each side and four different sections of that sari print for each set. So you can mix or match to your heart's content! 

It takes hours of careful hand stitching in even and straight rows  to create this beautiful piece of work. This ancient craft of kantha stitching has meant many sari's have been repurposed over the generations. We think Basha's workmanship is some of the best from its region!

Dimensions: 44cm x 33cm.

Colour: Side 1-Burnt orange, oatmeal and black. Side 2 -Dark oatmeal, navy, olive and burnt orange.

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 cushion, we suggest you limit the number of washes and spot clean .

The sari's 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.
