These non-woven textile circular placemats are made in Madagascar from undyed Bombyx cocoons using a no-kill process that is sustainable and eco-friendly.  They are a natural white color and provide an elegant setting for your next meal.  

The textile is made by stitching the cocoons together using a clear filament that disappears in the texture of the placemat.  Click here to learn about the process that members of CPALI in Madagascar use to make the silk textile

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.
