Blue Medley Handwoven Placemat

$ 75.00


Refined and sophisticated, yet durable enough for everyday use, the Blue Medley Handwoven Placemat is woven in a basket weave structure from the finest cotton and linen, finished with a hemmed edge. Incorporating a full spectrum of blue shades from royal to sapphire, sky and periwinkle. A natural linen warp is used to desaturate the colors, creating a paired down pop of color for your tabletop. 

14" W x 20" L

85% Cotton & 15% Linen

Machine wash cold on delicate cycle & line dry. Some shrinkage is expected. Give your placemat a tug once dry to stretch it back to its original size.

Crafted by hand from start to finish in our Main Street weaving studio.

Our masterful artisans begin by thoughtfully selecting colors and fibers inspired by our surrounding landscape, then determine a pattern and desired weave structure for their design.

Next, they wind the fiber onto bobbins then wind the loom’s warp, a meticulously calculated process that sets the path of each and every thread used. These threads are manually connected to specific harnesses and securely hand-tied to “dress the loom”. Once this stage is complete, they can begin to weave.

Countless passes of the shuttle commence, rhythmic, muted sounds of wooden pedals fill the studio, and a beautiful textile begins to emerge. The handwoven process continues until the piece reaches its full length, at which point it is cut from the loom. Tassels are hand-knotted onto the ends, and a small label is hand-sewn onto the textile as the weaver’s final touch.
