Handmade in Swaziland

TECHNIQUE - The placemats are produced by braiding long strands of Lutindzi grass together. These plaits are then woven, coiled, shaped, and sewn together.

MATERIAL - Lutindzi grass is harvested directly from the eSwatini mountains. The sisal, a regenerating weed is sourced from the Lavumisa area.

All our materials are dyed using environment-friendly German dyes imported from South Africa.

Easy to clean with a damp cloth or brush with a tooth brush/sponge. 

32cm (12") - this may vary slightly due to the placemats being handmade.
