Fine Linen Placemats made in Lake Como. This version of the classic chinoiserie was inspired by Italian birds and flowers that grow in abundance all around the lake, these are framed in with a hemstitch border. Sold in sets of two.
Placemats are known as "Sotto Piatti" (under the plates) or simply "Americani" in Italy. Italian hosts & hostesses tend to use tablecloths, thus the name "Americani". These are wonderful when a full tablecloth doesn't fit your entertaining mood. The large blooms are applied to high quality Italian linen using a special printing process. Likewise, the sewing is done by a master "sarta" (tailor) right here in Lake Como.
