Delicate 100% silk placemats to dress up your tablescape. Sold individually. Handmade in Bihar, India.
Silk is hand-dyed with botanical dyes in Bhagalpur, then taken to a town 6 hours away, where they are then cut into shape and carefully stitched by hand. Though silk is especially difficult to work with, it is beautifully airy and offers a luster we love. A time-consuming process, women make these in their homes. Each piece takes 1-2 days to complete.
Pre-washed. We love them crinkled; iron out flat if a smoother look is preferred.
