Don't be fooled by other mats coated in varnish. This melts when a warm cup is placed on it. I have tried and tested so many product mixes to find one that doesn't soften. They will also not yellow over time.
They are made to order to ensure they are made from the same fabric roll. Each mat will vary slightly in design, dependant on fabric cut.
As they are handmade, they may have very slight minor flaws occasionally, or the surface may not be entirely smooth. This is part of the design appeal, and as you can see in the pictures, they are finished to an extremely high standard, and are fit for purpose.
As each one is carefully made, a 5-7 working day dispatch is adhered to. This cannot be rushed as this will reduce the quality significantly.
They come with special care instructions:
Usage: The maximum heat that should be placed on these mats is that of a cup with a hot beverage in it or a plte with hot food (not a hot plate) on it. Any spillages should be removed immediately with a soft damp cloth. Keep out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.
Cleaning: Use a soft cloth with lukewarm water and a very small amount of detergent. Do not submerse in water or put in a dishwasher as this will damage your mats, as will abrasive cleaning materials.
