Ugwafu Lustre Tablemats
Handwoven using locally grown ugwafu grasses, these beautifully made tablemats have a gorgeous natural green lustre to them. Made by talented artisans in the tri-border post conflict area of Burundi, Rwanda and Tanzania, we work with an NGO to produce these unique mats and support them to nurture sustainable jobs for these women weavers.
These mats are much more sturdy and well made than the equivalent high street mats and are made to last. They come in three sizes, the smallest most suitable as a trivet, and the medium and large as place settings for a table. The large also works well as a centrepiece for a table or to keep serving plates on.
