These fibers are then dyed using natural pigments to create a range of beautiful colors that are both vibrant and long-lasting.
Handwoven placemats and napkin rings also offer a level of durability that is difficult to match with mass-produced linens. The fibers used in our handwoven products are of the highest quality and are carefully selected for their strength and durability. This means that your handwoven placemats and napkin rings will last for many years to come, becoming a cherished part of your home.
