Form meets function when the knitted dish mat props up plates and utensils to dry, intentionally highlighting the loveliness of an everyday moment. The texture and natural color add to the backdrop of time spent in the hub of the house - the kitchen. The pad features gentle ridges between the rows of knitting which help stabilize items in place. Wool is naturally anti-microbial, and the loop allows it to dry out easily between uses.
Hand knit and naturally dyed by women in Nepal, these dish mats add a beautiful texture to your sustainable kitchen. Since it is naturally dyed, each one is unique. At the end of its life cycle, the earth friendly fibers and dyes will decompose so it is one less thing to end up for a millennia in the landfill.
