I have the place mat set that matches these by same artisan and is exact same great workmanship and colors and love it. I wanted this runner for a mahogany coffee table and it works perfectly. My Maine Coon Cat Mix took an immediate interest to it as in wanting to lick and saw his interest in wanting to nibble and perhaps chew it so used a water-based made-for-cats bitter spray to curb that right away, which did not affect the color or appearance of runner at all. Very nicely made and nice to know all natural and keeping an art and craft alive through purchasing.
It was a breathtaking trip through Kanya and Tanzania. We brought back several wood carved bowls, frames and other practical gifts. Every time I use one of them, I am immediately taken back to the golden hue of the endless plains on the Serengeti. I have been looking for lovely, elegant napkin rings for my table and came across these hand carved rings. The are beautifully made, some in natural wood, some painted in a natural pigment. They are just as beautiful as anything we bought while traveling. In fact, we'll keep it as our secret.
The added bonus is that we are helping local artisans, which is also what we did while traveling. We went to the sheds where the artisans worked, not the typical tourist spots. These napkin rings come with a certification from the Jedando Modern Handicrafts an organization focusing on helping the artisans make a living. I googled it and they are legitimate.
I never thought I was able to find such a nice set of napkin rings. I bought it for a gift towards a friend and she loved them very much that she has asked me to order another set to complete her large dining table. It is a beautiful addition to the dining decor.
