Fabulously hand crafted by the eSwatini women

Colourful hand woven grass placemats made in eSwatini

These vibrant placemats speak for themselves. Why not mix and match your choice of colour with some of our other coloured mats to achieve a unique colourful setting.

A unique ethical gift with a story that can be shared round the table.

Our rural women weavers lie at the heart of everything that we do. We provides fair and sustainable income to over 780 skilled weavers across 13 groups and 52 communities in eSwatini. These women are talented artisans, breadwinners, and businesswomen who use their home-based work with Gone Rural to overcome some of the challenges of rural living and enhance the lives of their families and communities.

As the women work they braid three strands together, as their mothers and grandmothers have done before them, they produce these beautiful placemats from long strands of luntindzi grass.

Made from indigenous Lutindzi grass, sustainably harvested from the Swazi mountains.

Easy to clean with a damp cloth or brush with a toothbrush

Lutindzi - is sourced directly from the mountains of Swaziland. It is sustainably harvested by cutting above the root and is proven to be waterproof and stain-resistant due to its strong, waxy finish.

Sisal - a regenerating weed from the Lavumisa area of Swaziland, provides a fine fibre that can be dyed a spectrum of bright and light colours.

Lukhasi - a strong, thick grass which is found in the swamp areas and used in its raw form as the strengthening core of our sturdy products

All fibres are dyed using environmentally friendly German dyes imported from South Africa.
