"Kaleidoscope" Pattern Placemat - Gunmetal
Kaliedoscope, from the “Pressed” collection of placemats, is inspired by inspired by Japanese kumiko woodcrafting used for centuries to create intricate latticework screens, Kaleidoscope is a gleaming exploration of tessellations: patterns of shapes that fit perfectly together. Chilewich was intrigued by the way such designs can appear to fade in and out as they repeat in tiled forms. The traditional Asanoha motif (often used on kimono) was the starting point, creating a subtle ombré effect within each twelve-sided placemat.
This non-woven textile is created through a complex and time-consuming process utilizing special molds and requiring great collaboration between Chilewich and specialists at the producing factory in Taiwan. Use this delicate modern lace cut-out to surround a plate like a charger, or alone for a decorative and understated placemat that is surprisingly resilient. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Made in Taiwan. Phthalate free.
