Johari: Blue & Natural Woven Placemat SET OF 4

Sale price£48.00

Bring ethical style and a splash of Kenyan colour to the table with these MOSI handwoven sisal placemats: lavender with a soft natural rim. Perfect for lunches and brunches, al fresco suppers and family gatherings, these round placemats are just too lovely to be kept for best. Mix and match colours or opt for matching sets: there are so many beautiful combinations to be found in this very special collection, new for 2023.

The craftswomen behind these round place mats all learned to weave from their mothers and grandmothers, and practise this traditional craft within a small weaving group in rural Kenya. 

Much of basket production takes place during Kenya’s dry seasons, since most of these weavers are from farming communities who rely on farming (and rainfall) to feed, support and clothe their families. When farming slows down, weaving work picks up the slack. To buy one of our woven placemats is to support us empowering African craftswomen and protecting this age-old craft.
