These vibrant placemats speak for themselves. Why not mix and match your choice of colour with some of our other coloured mats to achieve a unique colourful setting.
Technique of Production
The plaiting technique, used since Gone Rural’s inception, is used to create some our most popular pieces. It involves using a dyed fibre, such as lutindzi, which is braided into long strands. These plaits are then woven, coiled, shaped, and sewn together to create beautiful products such as our placemats.
Lutindzi – is sourced directly from the mountains of Swaziland. It is sustainably harvested by cutting above the root and is proven to be waterproof and stain-resistant due to its strong, waxy finish.
All our materials are dye using environmentally friendly German dyes.
Wipe with damp cloth, do NOT machine wash. Do NOT leave in direct sunlight.
