Made from 100% woven cotton, these placemats will bring some softness to the table setting. It's not stiff but rather soft and fold-able, allowing it to be used as napkin or even a tea towel as well. The soft ecru background allows the black Siirtolapuutarha (Urban Garden) pattern by Maija Louekari to make a bold statement. Machine washable, it can be used for everyday dining or dress up the spread for special occasions.
Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag.
Price is for one placemat

I have a table placemat collection of several different black and white designs from Marimekko, Artek and Finlayson. Likewise, a collection of different black and white napkins - also from those designers. They make a gorgeously striking table, each guest having a different configuration. I ordered these Marimekko placemats to use as napkins, rather than placemats, because they are lighter weight. They are gorgeous, with the classic Siirtolapuutarha pattern woven into the fabric, rather than printed. Completely happy to have them - you can never have enough of Marimekko.

Love the Siirtolapuutarha pattern; it's one of my favorites. The quality is great as well. I was disappointed though that because of the size they don't work with a round table. So I would recommend this for square or rectangular tables.
