Hiirenvirna means Vicia cracca in Finnish, a type of plant referred to as Vetch. For what many consider to be a common weed, it is strikingly beautiful. Its tall stem climbs toward the light and is decorated with violet-colored petals. It grows all over the meadows of Finland, and is nicknamed "Mouse's pea" there because of its green, seed-bearing pods. Liina Harju captures their look beautifully on this spring-evoking pattern, alongside other colorful wildflowers. Printed on 100% acrylic-cotton, this Pentik placemat is easy to keep bright and beautifully. Acrylic-coated cotton makes minor messes easily wiped clean, but also allows it to be machine washable for more major spills. It feels coarser than untreated cotton, but still feels like fabric and not like vinyl of earlier placemats. Plus, the eco-friendly treatment helps to avoid wrinkling when folded!
Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag.
