Place settings are not just important when it comes to protecting a person's dining table, they also contribute to the overall atmosphere of the dining experience; in this case, the Inkbrush Placemat Set would bring a sense of Zen to the table. Inspired by the Japanese art of brushstrokes, typically those used by Zen Buddhists for thousands of years, the Inkbrush Placemat Set has a creatively calming aesthetic.

Although the Inkbrush Placemat Set would best suit a home that has other Asian-inspired decor, the simplicity of its design would allow it to fit in anywhere. The monochromatic mats can be mixed and matched with more vibrant options to turn the dining table into a true work of art. The mats are made out of 100 per cent cotton.
