Our Seashell placemats are the epitome of summer! Handmade in Colombia using the natural fiber known as “iraca.” Our Seashell 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. Designed with a round base and adorned with a delicate seashell inspired shape, these placemats are the perfect way to upgrade your summer table décor.
