Our gorgeous placemats are produced from sustainable PEFC-certified Eucalyptus hardboard and sustainably sourced cork, with no formaldehyde in the melamine layer. The layer is like a sugar paper coating (opposed to the urea mixings in plastic), making them eco-friendly.
Melamine is an extremely durable product, able to withstand temperatures of up to 140 degrees. It is easily wiped clean (no dishwashers please!), and with very little care will give you many years of service.
