This set of two placemats was created for us by OHC maker Indigo Plum Creations. They each measure approx 45 x 35 cm (17 1/2 x 14 inches in old money), and have three layers - a top patchwork layer of complementary pink, blue and beige prints, a backing layer of toning brick and sand, and an inner wadding layer for structure and insulation.
The two outside layers are 100% cotton, and the inner wadding is 50% cotton/50% bamboo.
Care instructions: a cool wash followed by a short spin is recommended. While they can be tumble dried on a cool setting, you can also freshen them by drying in breezy sunshine on a suitable day. Please be aware that washing may cause slight shrinkage which when combined with the all-over quilting, can give the ‘aged vintage’ look of older patchwork.
