Enzyme Washed Linen Double Woven Weight Placemat
Starting at $72 USD
This linen placement features a thicker double woven weight. Linen is a lifestyle, from planting the flax, a self-pollinating plant that is hardy and difficult to tame, to harvesting, to weaving. Linen is stronger and longer lasting than cotton or wool. We enzyme-wash linen, which is a laundering process that uses natural enzymes to soften and finish fabric; it is ecologically friendly and produces a softer more supple fabric that gets better with time. Our nature-inspired hues come from plant-based dyes. For our collection, we partner with a handloom collective in India, which is expert at achieving the perfect hue, size, heft, and fray.

Care Instructions: Our linens are made for everyday use and are machine washable. Wash with cold water with a very mild detergent; we suggest Laundress. Tumble dry on low heat or line dry. Hand smooth and fold linens flat to reduce wrinkling. Please note that ironing and bleach will stiffen our linens, hot water will shrink them.
Our Enzyme Linens have a hem just inside the fringe to keep them from fraying. However, the first few times they are washed, they will shed a bit. Simply cut the threads that start to shed to the same length as the fringe. We recommend washing linens alone for the first few washes to avoid getting lint on your other textiles.
Plant-based dyes give our natural linens their unique colors. As in any organic process, the dye lots may vary slightly so please note that the final product may not match the color swatch exactly.
