Woven Sisal Round Placemat with Green Trim


Round Woven Sisal Placemat with Green Trim

Bring sustainable style and a pop of Kenyan colour to the table with these handwoven sisal placemats: moshi beige with a fern green rim. Perfect for lazy brunches, al fresco suppers and family gatherings, these round placemats are just too lovely to be kept for best.

The craftswomen behind these round place mats all learned to weave from their mothers and grandmothers, and practise this traditional craft within a small weaving group in rural Kenya.  Where once these weavers would undertake the long journey to Nairobi to sell their work at markets, our Fairtrade supplier now places regular orders with them, enabling these women to work sustainably from home. 

The bulk of basket production takes place during Kenya’s dry seasons, since most of these weavers are from farming communities who rely on farming (and rainfall) to feed, support and clothe their families. When farming slows down, weaving work picks up the slack.
