Indigo and Red Handwoven Masland Table Mat and Runner Set
A hint of red travels across the placid surface of an indigo sea. An approaching storm or the setting sun. Only the artisan weaving the tale knows how this story ends. A throwback to simpler times, this design is synonymous with refined grace, yet adds a touch of bold individualism with the chosen hues. Masland Madurkathi is a traditional Bengali craft that uses locally grown grass or reeds to create mats, wall decor, table runners, and more. The reeds are collected, dried, dyed, and then woven. Dating as far back as the Mughal era in India, this time-consuming and laborious craft has been practised by the women of Bengal for centuries. Earlier, Madurkathi mats were primarily commonplace in Bengali households. Today, these mats and other Masland Madurkathi items have become premium products in various parts of the world, largely due to the hard work of the local artisans of West Bengal, and are viewed as symbols of not just culture and craft, but also sustainability.Dimensions
