Vachetta Leather Placemat
Let there be leather.
Leather might not an obvious choice for the dining table, but these hand-finished, vegetable-tanned soft leather placemats are quick to steal the show (and our hearts). Their vachetta leather is the same used for Italian handbags, and is renowned for the fine patina it develops with age. Bust them out to instantly elevate your tablescape when you want something a touch more special than the everyday playbook of cottons and linens.
Placemats are sold individually.
