Description From Mayamam Weavers
Set your table in rich southwest earth colors of apricot, slate, and browns. Our Celebration placemats are handwoven on the traditional backstrap loom. The center motif has been embroidered (or brocaded) at the same time as the weaving. This motif represents "ch'ech'" in Mam, which refers to the agave plant. The plant fibers have been used for weaving, as well as in construction, not to mention its application in tequila! (in the US we might find it as an ornamental house plant.)
Each placemat in a set has the same stripes and embroidery motif. The colors of the embroidery vary in each placemat.
Machine wash in cold water on gentle. Tumble Dry.
20” long by 14” wide
Set of 4 placemats.
Matching table runner available
