Collaboration between indigenous weavers and a design company

As each artist has complete freedom to interpret the form, each light is a one off and therefore unique. http://yb.koskela.com.au/

I bought these specially coated table mats in Paris recently and was surprised, when red wine was spilt on one, that it could be wiped off instantly at the table. https://www.le-jacquard-francais.com/table-linen/placemat/#/table-linen/placemat/shopby/100_coated_cotton_span_waterproof_stain_resistant_span/
