Tela Linen Placemat Plum Red - Set of 2


Combining the workmanship of craftsmen with a new perspective of design to create a product that is contemporary for today’s lifestyle.

Each piece is created from the highest quality of noble linen yarns and woven by vintage shuttle looms. The innovation of the design comes from a modern approach in combination of colours and patterns. The result of this process gives each piece a simple elegance. Every piece is finished by hand and has been selected with the greatest care; made entirely in Italy.

Made using 100% Italian linen in two “tela” or canvas weave structures, lighter finer version for the napkins with a heavier rustic version for the placemats.

These unique weaving structures are soft yet strong and tactile, perfect for an informal yet elegant table setting. After hand sewing each item goes through a special dying and stone washing process to create the soft and weathered look resulting in a unique effect with subtle irregularities which makes every piece unique. Perfect for everyday use.

Set of two placemats.

Size: 50x40cm, 100% linen, made in Italy.

  • Care: Gentle machine wash no warmer than 40c°, with a mild liquid detergent.
