Material: raffia

Our placemats are made from vegetable fibers. They smell and therefore feel wonderfully like nature.

Raffia (Corypha utan) occurs naturally in the steppe and forest areas of Southeast Asia. About every two years the plant renews its leaves and sheds the old ones, which are then collected by humans, dried in the sun for several days to weeks and made into wickerwork, depending on the desired degree of tanning. The relative rarity and higher processing effort make this material somewhat more expensive compared to other plant fibers. Although it is little known in Europe, the material has proven itself among the local population in Southeast Asia in the form of all kinds of everyday objects and is very popular because of its pleasantly soft, but robust character.
