The versatility of alpaca fiber will never cease to amaze. Not only can it keep you comfortable outdoors, but can add texture, subtle color and warmth to any area with wonderfully soft and amazingly durable place mats. These mats are made from 100% alpaca fiber wrapped around a jute cord for strength. All colors are completely natural, and they will not bleed or fade over time.
Because alpaca resists absorbing moisture, odors, and stains they are the perfect material for something that will encounter spills galore on your dinner table! In most cases spilled foods and liquids can simply be dumped off. To create these wonderful place mats, alpaca fiber is wrapped around a jute cord to give it strength and durability. This is then woven into various designs with a hydraulic loom. This ensures a tightly woven fabric to increase the longevity of the fabric as well as its resistance to water.
Can be used for so much more than keeping your plates and forks company…try using them on end tables to protect surfaces or use a single mat in the middle of a table for a decorate touch. Perfect for keeping all types of furniture protected from scraps, dings, cuts and marks caused by lamps or house plants while looking beautiful!
Please refer to the letter at the top right corner of each photo when ordering. Note: choices A-K are positioned with selvage edges at the top and bottom of the mat. L-M are positioned with selvage edges at the left and right of the mat. Please keep this in mind when ordering so all your pieces will match.
