Woven hot pad (trivet) and center piece with red and black bands

This stunning design of a hot pad and center piece was designed by Bora artisan Ania Ruiz from the village of Brillo Nuevo on the Ampiyacu River.  It features alternating black and maroon bands made with natural plant dyes set throughout rings of natural off-white chambira palm fiber.  This pattern was inspired by the design of a local coral snake.  Each craft is hand-made so there will be slight variations between each craft and the photo of the model.

This craft comes in two sizes that could both be beautiful hot pads, trivets or placemats.
