Set of two double-layer fabric place mats, which have reclaimed an ancient skill of the region. In rural areas, where the raw material for weaving, mainly flax, came directly from the land and went through a lengthy process before reaching the looms, it was not easy to find alternative materials. Thus, besides the flax, the weavers would re-use old clothes that they cut into strips and used to weave rugs, mats and other useful articles.
The articles are produced on a traditional loom, where strips of leftover re-used fabrics are interwoven in a cotton web. The leftover cloth is reused to make strips that pass through the cotton weft with the shuttle, handled in masterly fashion by the weavers.
