The Caracoles Round Iraca Straw Woven Placemat is our latest design! The pretty Caracoli shape fills the table setting area. The intricate design will surely stand out against flat or printed tablecloth. Our Caracoli round Iraca straw woven placemat measures 15" in diameter and is big enough to be used with or without plate chargers.
Our round woven placemats are made with 100% Iraca. Iraca is a tropical palm native to Colombia known for its strong fibers. Our round Iraca woven placemats look very similar to other natural fiber placemats like jute, raffia, seagrass, straw, Hyacinth but because Iraca is a stronger fiber, it can be weaved into intricate designs unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Our round Iraca woven placemats will be an elegant addition to any tablescape theme like Boho, Farmstyle, Cottage, Country, etc.
Each of our Iraca straw woven placemats are handcrafted by Indigenous artisans from the village of Usiacuri in Colombia where the timed art of Iraca weaving has been passed down from generation to generation and where so much passion and energy goes into creating our amazing tabletop decor.
We are an online store dedicated to bettering the lives of indigenous artisans while helping you elevate your home with beautiful, handmade tabletop décor and accessories. That’s why we donate 15% of our profits to fund various community projects among the indigenous communities of northern Colombia.
This is a fair trade piece empowering artisans from indigenous tribes to better themselves through textile work at fair prices.
