Lily of the Valley placemat set, beautifully embroidered on pina cloth. Set includes 6 placemats, 6 napkins, and 6 coasters. Very good condition, gently used. Hand laundered, bright and clean, table ready. We note only a few pulls on a couple of the mats (second last photo shows the "worst" two); also.
Some pulls and areas of uneven weave in the napkins (see last photo). Minor, and easily forgiven - this set is stunning. 6 placemats, 11 x 16 inches. 6 napkins, 12 x 12.5 inches. Pina cloth from the Philippines has an illustrious history going back centuries.
Painstakingly harvested by hand from pineapple leaves, and entirely hand woven, pina cloth has always been considered a unique textile treasure - cool, silky, translucent and refined, especially when paired with fine embroidery. In the 19th century, embellished pina linens were often presented to royalty as luxurious gifts.
