jade recycled bag placemat set

jade recycled bag placemat set


these gorgeous handwoven placemats are made entirely out of hand-cut plastic bags that were intercepted on their way to the landfill and woven onto a nylon warp. these placemats were woven strictly out of produce bags. I take bag donations anytime, as I would love to continue making these and they require quite a few bags to make an edition (thus, very small editions). the edges of these placemats are sealed under high heat. none of them are identical, but they are all alike, the bags vary a little in color and cause striations in the tones of the placemat.

sold as a set of two.

WARNING: might contain trace gluten, tree nuts, peanuts. If you are allergic to any of these things or live with someone who is, do not purchase these placemats.

dimensions: approx 12.5” x 14.5”

because these placemats are made entirely of plastic they can be washed GENTLY in the sink and dried on the drying rack. despite being made out of plastic, this is a handwoven product and should be treated with care. DO NOT PULL ON THE SIDES OF THIS PLACEMAT. The heat sealer is strong but can’t withstand excessive force.

* i did not invent the concept of weaving with plastic bags, this idea was introduced to me by Olga Reiche, a textile designer in Guatemala
