Soraya's Note: Handmade in Colombia using the natural fiber known as “iraca” our Fringe placemats are perfect for your next backyard event. Iraca is a tropical palm native to Colombia that can grow up to 3 meters (10ft) tall and can take up to 3 years to reach maturity which then allows it to be used to create many crafts. Woven in a perfect circle, finished with fringe details, sewed in one by one, our handmade process makes this artisanal placemat one-of-a-kind. Its intricate design can take up to 3 days to weave each piece. With a natural original color, our Fringe placemats add an organic and elegant touch to your table setting. They are sized for a charger plate and matching coasters will make for the perfect dinning set up.
