Colourful hand woven grass placemats made in eSwatini
These vibrant placemats speak for themselves. A unique ethical gift with a story that can be shared round the table.
At Gone Rural the female weavers lie at the heart of everything they do. They provides fair and sustainable income to over 780 skilled weavers across 13 groups and 52 communities in eSwatini. These women are talented artisans, breadwinners, and businesswomen who use their home-based work with Gone Rural to overcome some of the challenges of rural living and enhance the lives of their families and communities.
As the women work they braid three strands together, as their mothers and grandmothers have done before them, they produce these beautiful placemats from long strands of luntindzi grass.
Made from indigenous Lutindzi grass, sustainably harvested from the Swazi mountains.
Easy to clean with a damp cloth or brush with a toothbrush
