WHO MADE YOUR PLACEMAT?
The weavers we work with are all part of a community-based cooperative in Southern Rwanda, working to socially improve their livelihoods and to keep the art of weaving alive. Through the sharing of skills, artisans are trained in art and crafts, public health, basic sales, and communication techniques to meet the demands of the markets today.

Rwandan place mats are famously robust and versatile.
To clean your Rwandan place mat, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth or sponge, remove most of the moisture with a dry towel and leave to air dry naturally.
Avoid placing your Rwandan place mat in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
