ITEM#: 13927762

This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Weaving nature's treasures with aesthetic grace, Liem Hauw crafts these handsome placemats. He combines threads obtained from fragrant roots with brown cotton threads, creating four placemats in elegant black.

Product Features:
  • Color: Black
  • Pattern: Weave
  • Materials: 50-percent cotton/50-percent fragrant root
  • Care instructions: Clean with a dry cloth
  • Dimensions: 13.8 inches long x 17.3 inches wide

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.'

  • Unique with lovely "outdoor" aroma
    Verified Purchase

    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. :)

  • Nice look..."fragrant wood sticks" and fiber
    Verified Purchase

    These look great for my table. The "fragrant root" is something similar to sandalwood...but not exactly and stronger when you first open the package. After a few days, you don't really even smell them. The "roots" are woven into the fiber and look very nice. In the right setting this is very dramatic, but not overpowering like solid black.

  • like them very much
    Verified Purchase

    I like this "world trade" item. In addition to looking good (rustic sort of appearance) they smell good because they made out of fragrant grass (not strong, you have to really smell them close). After spill I just ran warm tap water on the spot and let it dry out - that;s solved it.

  • Placemats from Indonesia
    Verified Purchase

    Very sophisticated & earthy look - will go nicely with any dinnerware, as it's neutral and looks especially good on my dark wood dining table, from O. Since the natural fibers can be a little scratchy, I've placed them on top of plain, black cotton placemats, which frame them perfectly. Happy with the layered tabletop look & happy with my purchase!

  • Nice
    Verified Purchase

    These took a little while for delivery (spoiled by Overstock's usual superfast delivery), but were worth it. They are very nice, and the color description is accurate, there is no white in them as the one picture displays. The fragrant root they are made of smells really nice.
