"If not washable, how are they cleaned? Also, are they a true black, or a very deep brown?"
We've had this placemat for more than a year. It's held up well with a little sink washing in mild detergent. The earthy scent returns after each washing....

Story Behind the Art:
Born in Java, Liem Hauw began by opening an art workshop in Indonesia. 'I work with textiles made from natural materials such as fragrant root, sea grass and many others. Maybe God had planned this way of life for me. My works became recognized and I started to make my own curtains, floor mats, cushions, and other items. Now I also craft frames, vases, baskets and lamps.'

I am going to order more for myself, and intend to get some as presents for friends. That's how nice they are. Lovely, unusual, and have the most wonderful fresh outdoor smell - not strong at all, though. You have to put your nose down to it, which I intend to have my guests do at my next formal dinner party. :)Read More
