Product Details

These beautiful placemats combine two cherished pieces of Malaysian craft heritage: mengkuang and batik. The mengkuang side is hand-woven by the women-weavers in the villages in Terengganu. These leaves have to go through labourious processes (cutting, thumping, drying, dyeing) before they are ready to be woven.

The batik on the other side is traditionally hand-blocked in Terengganu, and dyed with beautiful vibrant colours. We work with several groups of batik artisans, each bringing unique spin to this age-old craft.

The beautiful combination of colours, coupled with the charm of natural materials used, would be a perfect companion for your meals. They will also make great conversation piece.
