Fine dining acquires a new meaning when food is served on these beautiful placemats from our Indian home decor collection. Perfect for your dining table, they are a unique blend of banana rope crocheting done by hand on rich poly dupioni silk with a woven lining. Measuring 14 X 20 inches, a choice can be made between several colors. Hand crochet is very native to Southern India, where the skilled craftsmen have relied on local resources and handmade tools and looms. Here, the Banana bark is cut, dried and then spliced by hand. It is subsequently soaked in water, dried again and finally made into a rope.
