In the world of nautical flags, colors and patterns are used as a code between ships to say things like “altering course to starboard” or “man overboard.” And these placemats? Well, they say “dinner’s ready” loud and clear. Woven in Maine from the same materials used to make rope for lobster boats—on a repurposed machine from the ‘70s, no less—they’re also elegant and timeless (see the tasseled edges? So pretty!). Plus, that navy blue will compliment dishes for all occasions, especially when paired with these matching napkin rings.

Heads up: This item is carefully made to order in Maine, so it'll ship out in 2-3 weeks. (It's worth the wait—trust us.)
