These hot pads are functional home decor !

This trivet serves as a hot pad protector for any countertop or tabletop and is sure to be a conversation started with family and friends you are serving.  You can’t go wrong with a trivet as a thoughtful hostess gift for mom, grandma, or a new neighbor!  Our sisal trivet can be a personalized gift that finds itself super useful in every home and will match your indoor and outdoor decor.  If you happen to give it to a non-baker, the woven trivets are ready to hang on your wall as a simple yet breathtaking piece of wall art.  Each trivet comes with a hand-stitched loop on the back so it is ready to hang.

These colorful, textured trivets were made by groups of women in small cooperatives across rural areas of Rwanda in an ethical, fair trade environment.  They weave together sweetgrass and sisal fibers using a sewing needle to achieve these incredible pieces of art.
