This set of four cork placemats from LIGA is hand printed in Cornwall with white sea urchins. At 1cm thick, with rounded edges, they have a sturdy, quality feel - unlike a lot of cork tableware out there.
Cork is a sustainable, eco material - heat resistant, easy to clean and hypo-allergenic. Cork oak forests provide home and shelter to many endangered species of animals, birds and plants in Portugal, and the cork is harvested naturally every nine years without harming the tree. Cork continues to absorb CO2 even as a placemat - it's an amazing material!
Each placemat measures 25cm diamater by 1cm deep and the set is wrapped in a white paper band.
