art deco place mats

These exquisite hand made place mats are from the 1930's. They are perfect. The colours glow, the weaving is just so neat, the colours are jaw-droppingly beautiful (the reduduction I have created here really doesn't share how saturated and radiant the colours really are...). I inherited them from my mother. She had a draw full of linen and straw place mats. These were the best ones. They are some of my favorite things, and continue to nourish my eyes and heart with their simple beauty.
