Fine Italian Linen Placemats made in Lake Como. In this modern Toile pattern you'll find typical scenes or vignettes found around the lake; Fireworks, Riva boats, swans and sea planes. The Lake Como Toile pattern is printed on an off white ground with a range of colors but the beautiful greens and blues pop more, just like the lake itself. These generously sized, artisanal placemats are framed in with a hemstitch border.
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 pattern is applied to high quality Italian linen locally using a special printing process. Likewise, the sewing is done by a master "sarta" (tailor) right here in the Lake Como area.
Sold in Sets of Two.
