    Story Behind the Art:
    These placemats were made of vetiver root and cotton thread in a traditional village weaving cooperative workshop in Java. Vetiver is a naturally aromatic root with a soothing scent. The oil is often extracted to make perfume and other spa products. Its healing, aromatherapy traits are stress reduction and relaxation. Like cedar, vetiver is also used to keep away moths. Grandmas in the village always put some vetiver in the cupboard where they store their best ceremonial sarongs. In addition, it's deep growing roots make it very useful to deter soil erosion in deforested areas and is used by the zen zen forest conservation club and other reforestation and community empowerment projects.

  • very good looking, not as functional

    These placemats look just beautiful on our mahogany table. The colors really compliment the wood and vice versa. My only complaint is that they are very loosely woven, so any spill would go right through to the table top. So they are great as decorative placemats, but don't serve as well for table protection. They also come with a strong smell that I think is cedar -- not unpleasant, but very noticeable. I don't know how it will fade over time.

Can I wash these in my washer? They have a strong smell and was wondering if washing them would lessen the smell. prairiebee on Mar 25, 2013

The longer side is without fringe. The smaller side has the fringe and there is approximately 1 inch between the fringe. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 26, 2012
