"Beautiful table linens and more."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This set of placemats and napkins is beautiful and exactly what I needed for my new kitchen table. The package came gift-wrapped with a geometric design printed onto recycled paper. A worry doll was attached to the ribbon along with an explanation of the dolls use and history in Mayan culture. The napkins are on the small side but perfectly matched with the placemats. If needed, it would be easy to find additional napkins that coordinate well. I am very happy with this purchase, the wrapping paper and worry doll enhanced my pleasure. It felt like I had bought myself a present and somebody gave me an additional gift. Thank you Senor Eladio Chiroy!

I love love love my place mats and napkins. Theyre well made and is of very good quailty. I purchased a round lapis blue tablecloth to match them from another store as I was unable to find one on the Novica site. Theyll be cherished forever.

I warmly appreciate the care & design informing these beautiful woven cotton napkins... naturally enough, this led me to purchase dish towels as well by this wonderful artisan, Eladio Chiroy. Thank you!

"Pretty dish towel"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The dish towel looks lovely, but it is not absorbent even after washing (no fabric softener used). Disappointing that it is decorative but not functional.
