The MAHILA placemats were made for those who demand simplicity and love beautiful table settings and well-crafted objects. The MAHILA comes straight from the Kandal province of Cambodia. 

Hand woven from river bulrushes, the MAHILA is a work of time and patience. The bulrushes are first collected and sorted, before being dyed and left to dry. It is only then, that they can be woven by hand in a process that takes two days. Lively and striking, these pieces will evolve over time. 

The colour will develop a patina from the sun. The unique motifs are edged with a fine black fringing. Woven according to an age-old tradition, each piece is carefully crafted by women in their own homes or more precisely, in the ateliers located under the stilts of their houses. Working at home not only gives free rein to these women’s creativity and talent, it also removes them from the sometimes difficult conditions of factories.
