Lallita Place Mat

This stylish placemat is handmade from organic jute fibre which is twisted and stitched into concentric circles with a zigzag motif between. Jute is a strong natural fibre with significant environmental benefits as it consumes carbon dioxide, it is 100% biodegradable, renewable and is sustainably harvested. Handmade by skilled artisans working with CORR- The Jute Works, one of our fair trade partners in Bangladesh.
