Fine Linen Placemats made in Lake Como. Hydrangeas, which grow in abundance all around the lake, are framed in with a blue scallop border. The petal colors are in a range of beautiful, muted blues with deep navy stem and leaves.
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.
Sold in sets of two.
