Araliya Coconut Fibre Trivet
Protect your surfaces with these handmade placemats and trivets. To make these the coconut fibre is first plaited and then wound into shape. It is then stitched using a modified drill so that each piece will be long lasting and will not unravel. Coconut fibre has a natural anti-bacterial so will not become smelly and can be rinsed in water.These balls of natural Coconut fibre string are handmade by the Araliya Community Company, a fair trade group owned and operated by women in Sri Lanka. Each ball has 25m of string with a swing tag that explains the story of this wonderful company. Coconut string can be used for gift wrap, macramé or even to tie your vegetable in the garden, it won't rot in the rain.
