This vibrant tassel placemat was handwoven by Berber women artisans in Morocco using locally sourced raffia. Each tassel is tied by hand and interlaced between natural reeds. Intended as a whimsical pop of color, these placemats work on their own, as a group, or mixed and matched for the ultimate bohemian tabletop. Try one on your table, in your bathroom, on your desk, or while dining al fresco for an unexpected twist on the classic picnic.
The Berber people of Morocco are known for their artisanal crafts. Nature plays an inspired role in their work, and resources are a precious part of their production. Materials such as plants, leather and wool, as well as vegetable dyeing processes are common.
We love the mix of natural raffia and unexpected tassels. These placemats are a fun addition to any tabletop!
This placemat is approximately 11.75” x 15.5” with a 1” hand-tied tassel. Sold individually. Due to the handmade nature of the item, no two are exactly alike. Each placemat may contain subtle imperfections that speak to the natural materials and handmade production process.
