Olivia Striped Woven Placemats (Set of 4)
The classic stripe is given a new lease of life with our bold red, green, yellow and blue placemats. The durable placemats (for inside and outside use) are hand woven on a vertical loom traditionally used for hammocks. Extra fun when combined with our Palmito Shellfish or Fruity Napkin Rings, and for an added stylish touch layer with our Sandra Woven Placemats.

In Northern Colombia, the municipality of San Jacinto has made its name as a craft centre. Known as the 'first on the Atlantic Coast', colourful hammocks, handbags and pillows are weaved, amongst other products, on a vertical loom. Girls inherit the craft at the age of 12 and as a result, many follow the path of their artisan mother and grandmother. But weaving is more than an income - it's a way of life for them, a symbol of cultural wealth and tradition. The Colombia Collective has taken the traditional material and re-invigorated it into vibrant tablecloths, tablemats and cushions.
