Thank you to Blythe Copeland of for including Native Leaf’s  hand-woven, romblon leaf placemats in the recent TreeHugger’s Green Gift Guide: 10 Compostable, Biodegradable Gifts.

The world is full of things you didn’t know you could compost, and now your holiday shopping can mimic that trend, too: Organic, Fair Trade teas and coffees, woven place mats and bamboo plates, bioplastic baby toys and potato-based ponchos all have their place on this year’s list.

Here is the link to the article  (our placemats are on page 8 of the slide show).

    I love my placemats!! Affordable. Good quality. Awesome colors. Romblon fiber has such a nice feel too. They are too beautiful to put away so I’m using them as table centers, under vases and lamps. Thank you Native Leaf!

    We appreciate your comments, Barbara…and thank you for your input on other creative uses for our place mats. We agree, they are too pretty too put away in a drawer!
