These two placemats are newly in stock and we’re quite fond of them. The bottom one is made from sisal, which if you didn’t know, is the fibre extracted from the sisal plant, an agave that is quite common in South Africa. Its strength, durability and ability to stretch has made it a popular material in everything from textiles to rope and twine, but here it serves the simple purpose of protecting your table and making a set table look better. The top placemat is made from bamboo, also making it extremely durable and tough, as well as providing great heat protection for any wood dining table you may have. They’re both versatile enough to serve as heat mats for warm pots or dishes coming out the oven. The sisal mats are R95 each, the bamboo ones R65.
