Although "large" the Mono Placemat sized at 36x60cm really does work as a placemat especially on larger tables. Remember to place not just the plate but also all cutlery, glasses and even condiments on it. Keep your table clean and undamaged in Charcoal and Warm Grey. Pappelinas range of Mono Table Mats and Runners come in several practical sizes and loads of amazing colourways ensuring you can create a table setting to be remembered! Produced in exactly the same way as the world famous Pappelina rugs these table settings are almost indestructible and certainly low maintenance! They are totally weatherproof so can be used in any setting indoors or out, come rain, come sun, come anything. All items can be used as trivets, ie for hand hot bowls and plates, though we would caution that excessive heat can damage the surface underneath the runner so we recommend not putting metal pans or extremely hot items on them.
As Pappelina runners are hand-woven please allow up to a plus or minus 4 percent size variation.
PVC AND SOME QUICK FACTS.
Wherever we use plastic in todays world we must now ensure it is in the safest and most environmentally friendly conditions.
Historically PVC used to contain some harmful ingredients such as chromium, lead, cadmium and phthalates all of which are harmful to people and to the environment giving the material an extremely bad reputation.
In the last decades PVC has undergone a massive change for the better with a lot of research being undertaken into the composite of the material. As a result todays PVC is 100% safe and fully sustainable, a positive message that is gradually winning over the historical negative one.
PVC is a plastic that is produced with relatively low power consumption giving rise to much lower carbon dioxide emissions when compared to most other plastics including PP and the well-known PET. .
The PVC plastic Pappelina use exclusively is entirely free of phthalates and is completely non-toxic; it is in fact approved for use in the food industry and for toys in the EU and the US. PVC is also used extensively in healthcare and medical devices such as tubes and blood bags. .
PVC has an extremely long life-span, is very durable and does not emit microplastic particles that affect our health and our nature. .
PVC is made from natural resources such as salt, oil and ethylene and, thanks to its composition, is 100% recyclable as it can easily be melted down and reused.
Pappelinas plastic supplier, Gislaved Folie AB of Sweden, is fully certified in accordance with the acknowledged international standardizations ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. .
