These exquisite placemats are carefully crafted using an intricate handwoven patterning technique, giving them a rich texture, and curated feel.  A special 'clasped weft' weaving method is used to create the distinctive zigzag chevron pattern.  

They are made from two unique types of fiber:

  • Ceranchia wild silk, which is a species of silk only found in Madagascar.  The golden textured yarn is the natural, undyed color of the wild silk. 
  • Natural, undyed raffia which has a smooth satin-like sheen.

    These beauties are sure to give an earthy elegance to your home, bringing warmth and interest to your space.

    • Sold in set of two

    • Handwoven Ceranchia wild silk and raffia

    These art pieces were sustainably sourced and made in Madagascar by SEPALIM, 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 Tanana are returned to our team in Madagascar.

    Unique, eye catching and gorgeous!

    This piece is so gorgeous! Friends constantly remark on it and when I tell the story behind how it is made from endemic species and that is supports local artisans and forest conservation in Madagascar, they are doubly impressed!

    Great house gift

    We assembled a set (runner plus 4 placemats) as a house gift for friends who hosted us in their home for a few days. The pieces were beautifully made, nicely packaged, and warmly received. We have an older style in our own home and they are easy to clean and make a striking table setting.
