Placemats - Set of 2
Mantel de Huixtan Multicolor
Set of 2 rectangular placemats are hand embroidered on 100% cream linen. The placemats are embroidered with floral designs in pink and red with hunter green leaves and finished with a zig-zag border around the periphery of the placemat.
These placemats were made by a community of artisans in Huixtan, Chiapas. The traditional embroidery typically showcases full, filled flower designs done on blouses and linens. The technique is known as “Bordado de nuditos” or embroidery of knots, as many fine knots are repeated to create these intricate patterns. The community is comprised of just seven women, and each piece took 40 days to complete.
