Item: Set of 4 wooden placemats in Emma Bridgewater Polka Dot, handcrafted by Simply Divine Things.
How they are made: We take 19 x 23cm boards and top with a napkin. They are finished with a special coating to protect them from daily use. Unlike varnish, this will not melt when a warm plate is placed on it and it will not yellow over time. They are finished on the bottom with cork. We do not rush the making process, as doing so would compromise on quality and we want you to be using your mats for years to come. Therefore they take 5 working days to create.
Important information: Due to the nature of decoupage, the surface of each mat will not be smooth. If you would prefer a smooth finish, please see our mats made with fabric. Each mat will be different and the photos show a representation only. You may find these mats come with a chemical smell. This is from the production process and will quickly fade.
Care instructions: The maximum heat that should be placed on these mats is that from a plate with a hot meal on it or a cup with a hot drink in it. You can also put plates on that have been gently warmed, however you should put oven dishes on them that have been in the oven. Any spillages should be removed with a cloth and, if required, a non-abrasive cleaning liquid (we have tested ours with Dettol with no problems). Do not put them in the dishwasher or submerge in water. Keep your mats out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.
