Placemat and Napkin SetLou Zeldis Poleng
This hand-drawn batik is a Lou Zeldis original. It is the result of much time and effort using traditional techniques of wax-resist patterning and natural dyes. Lou Zeldis was masterful in the use of design using age old batik techniques as his media- the images were inspired by nature, found objects, and his travels across the world.
The placemats come as a set of one with an accompanying napkin so you can purchase as many sets as you need for your table setting. The checkered batik pattern on one side is called poleng which represents the duality of life. The backing of the placemat is handspun cotton from Java and dyed by the Threads of Life dye studio. These will be stunning on any table. Lou Zeldis also designed jewelry and this is available at https://www.louzeldis.com. Dry clean or hand wash with mild soap and hang to dry.
