Each trivet begins with the gathering of forest grasses and large sisal leaves. Once the sisal fibers have been extracted from the leaf, cleaned, dyed, and dried, the artisans are ready to begin. The sisal fibers are threaded around and around a core of forest grasses, the design taking shape bit by bit. In the end, you have a beautiful and useful addition to your dinner table.
Hand woven trivets also make a lovely housewarming gift. Pair one with a set of coasters or napkin rings for a fun and memorable wedding present.
Come and meet the weavers of your trivet in their feature profile. They are skilled and determined women!
