Curator's Notes

The Design

Set of 5 striped placemats (which can also double as napkins, in a pinch), handmade in Morocco. An easy way to uplift your table, these placemats feature a charming fringe and are easy to clean—just throw them into the wash.

The Material

Cotton, a vegetable fiber, is a stalwart textile, beloved for its sturdiness and strength. Flexible and easy to clean, it has the ability to stay white over long periods of time, maintaining its crispness and vibrancy. Leather ages naturally, becoming more supple and luxurious after years of use.

The Maker

Our partner is an artisanal cooperative located outside of Marrakech who specializes in handweaving and embroidery. Known for their updated spins on traditional Moroccan products, they share profits equally and have a school onsite so mothers can work. Their goal is to preserve traditional crafts and techniques, passing them along to younger generations through careful training.
