Placemats made from pure striped eco linen canvas: $12
With a simple rustic beauty, these placemats made of 9.1oz sqy pure striped eco linen canvas are perfect for adding a touch of farmhouse style to the kitchen. They will also fit in well with the industrial genre or in the student apartment. With their grain sack-like stripes, they also retain the pleasant smell of fields and crops. They will be a favorite for those who are obsessed with stripes or those who swear by raw and “organic” materials. The placemats are simply edged at the top and bottom and the pretty selvedges are as is on the sides.
When washed and shrunk, this linen measures 16″-17″ wide. It is woven using a different size yarn for the warp and weft. This means that the shrinkage occurs differently in length and width and produces slight waves on the selvedge side that do not fully resolve when ironed. To say that this canvas represents the perfect of the imperfect is the best way to describe it.
Placemats are available in two choices of black stripes, wide blue stripes or natural stripes.
