Woven hot pads, place mats and center pieces
Woven hot pad (trivet) and center piece with green and white rings (TP003)
This hot pad and center piece was designed by Bora artisan Monica Chichaco from the village of Brillo Nuevo on the Ampiyacu River. It features alternating rings of forest green and natural off-white chambira palm fiber with a green center. The pattern is inspired by the colors of the loro machaco (green tree pit viper) snake whose body blends in well with leaves. Like all hand-made crafts, its exact design may vary from the photo of the model.
