Coloured trivets and placemats handmade from coconut fibre. The coconut fibre is first plaited and then wound into shape. It is then stitched using a modified drill so that each piece will be long lasting and will not unravel. Coconut fibre has a natural anti-bacterial so will not become smelly and can be rinsed in water. These items are made by the Araliya Community Company, a company owned and operated by women providing sustainable employment, safe working conditions, a living wage and pension as well as supporting the school for deaf and mute children.
