Natural Palm Placemat
Made by Palm Weavers in San Juan Sosola, Mexico
You can still purchase the Natural Palm Placemat, and it will ship when back in-stock.
A simple and relaxed placemat, easily mixed and matched with any of our kitchen textiles. Not only are they beautiful as a set of placemats but great on your nightstand or as a tabletop centerpiece as well. Natural palm is hand-braided into long strips and then expertly sewn into shape by a family run co-op in Oaxaca, Mexico.

- Ethically made
Made in a small rural village with little industry, this type of palm weaving is not native to this region and is typically done in Guerrero, in the north of Mexico. However, about 10-15 years ago this village was trained by a government program to make these baskets and develop the industry. After the program ran out of funding, the workshop closed down. This small group of weavers are working to keep that industry alive and thriving.
