We recommend that you unfold the product completely before washing, and avoid overfilling the washing machine. The product is stretched gently after washing.
We recommend hang drying of the placemats, as this provides a smooth result.
Be sure to follow the washing instructions as washing at precisely 60°C makes the cotton open up and be washed clean. A lot of people believe they protect the placemats by washing them at 40°C, but the products are made to withstand a higher temperature.
The placemat’s iconic motif celebrates Christmas as the season of goodwill and is a nostalgic signature design. With its durable damask weave of 50% linen and 50% cotton, the rustic placemat is a timeless addition to the many cosy moments around Christmas.
The motif was designed by Bodil Bødtker-Næss, who was in the inner circle of textile artists around Georg Jensen Damask in the 1970s and was also the artist responsible for the classic Easter design from the same period. The pleated Christmas hearts and stylised spruce twigs have represented the quintessence of Danish Christmas spirit for more than 45 years, and the design is an indispensable part of Christmas in many homes.
The dark green colour is one of the classic shades of Christmas, and it exudes an old-fashioned Christmas feeling. The colour creates a holiday ambience around the table and is suitable for any occasion throughout December.
Cloth napkins in linen or damask will accentuate the evocative look.
