Moss Green with napkin rings

Hand-crafted, beautiful texture. Compostable and biodegrades back to earth —- after many years of use that is.

Main moss green place mat photo shown with our wood bead napkin rings in colors Mango, Terra Cotta and Moss Green.  Middle product photo — weaving hands — is our Cacao Brown color mat.

If you like to mix and match placemats, the Moss Green pairs nicely with fall color mats such as Cacao Brown, Terra Cotta and Mango.

NOTES:

  • Color swatches or what you see on your screen may not match dye colors exactly (we think you will find our actual dyed materials more beautiful).
  • As we do not use chemicals to prepare or mordant our romblon leave, seasonal differences of Romblon leaves, weather and dye batches may affect color shades.  Sunny days produce light color leaves for our lime, lemon and lighter colors. Continued rainy days during typhoon season result in leaves suitable only for our darker colors.

Romblon is a type of screw pine found in many islands in the Western Pacific. It grows in abundance by the seashore and is a sustainable resource.

The sword shaped leaves are harvested leaving the plant to grow new leaves for future use. Once dried, the leaves are traditionally woven into sleeping mats, market bags and other useful items.

Visit our Plant Source Page for more information and pictures of the romblon (pandanus) plant.
