These non-woven silk textile placemats are made in Madagascar from wild-gathered cocoons using a no-kill process that is sustainable and eco-friendly.  The placemats are made from the Ceranchia cocoon species.  Both the inner more opaque layer and the more translucent outer layer of the Ceranchia cocoon are used.  

The non-woven textile is made by stitching the cocoons together using a clear filament that disappears in the texture of the placemat.  Some of the cocoons are left natural in color and some are dyed in eye-pleasing colors.  These placemats are Shibori-dyed and feature traditional patterns. The dyes used are color-fast.

These placemats were sustainably sourced and made in Madagascar by CPALI, a poverty alleviation NGO in northeastern Madagascar that invests in local leadership, community ownership and linking these partners to global markets.  100% of the profits from Ta’na’na Silk are returned to Madagascar.

Care:  Hand-wash only, warm or cold water. Hang on line to dry. Iron with steam iron on low-heat setting and place a pressing guard sheet over the silk to protect it while you iron.
