Ink Edge Placemat
Nila’s ‘Ink Edge’ placemat is made from banana fibre, handwoven into an intricate lattice pattern and finished with a border dipped in indigo, giving the piece a striking, inky blue outline. Made entirely of natural materials and handmade processes, the placemat is a beautiful and sustainable addition to a table setting.
The Ink Edge placemat is woven by the women associated with The Kishkinda Trust in Anegudi, located along the Tungabhadra river in Karnataka. The knowledge of weaving with natural fibres like Banana and river grass is deeply rooted in the region. The Kishkinda Trust have been working closely with communities in Anegudi to promote natural fibre-based crafts as a means to generate livelihood support. This has been a particularly valuable source of economic empowerment for the women in the area, who work from their homes, seamlessly weaving their craft practices with the multitude of roles they are expected to take on.
Nila’s collaboration with The Kishkinda Trust supports highly sustainable products with quality, contemporary design. The Ink Edge placemat can be paired with our matching Ink Edge coasters for an environmentally friendly and effortlessly elegant table setting.
