Handwoven Iraca Flower Placemats
Handmade in Colombia
Set of 6 Multicoloured
This set of 6 Iraca placemats have been handcrafted by our artisan partners in Colombia exclusively for Wicklewood. Woven following a traditional technique which has been passed down through generations, they add bohemian chic to any tablescape. The cheerful design combines many colours of Iraca palm, with a delicate scalloped edge - perfect to add character to your dinner table and brighten up mealtimes.
These placemats are made in Colombia using an ancestral weaving technique. In pre-Hispanic America, palm fibres were woven in this style to make textiles, hats and baskets. Artisans that specialise in this style of weaving begin by shaping a wireframe, over which they weave intricate lace-like patterns with the Iraca palm. The exceptional handwork creates pieces that are beautiful, functional and hard-wearing.
Each placemat measures 34 cm diameter and is handmade in Colombia from Iraca palm.
