Set of hand knit round placemats in chaguar. Each piece is unique and was handmade using traditional knitting techniques from the Wichí community, passed on from generation to generation.

  • A: Set of 4 round placemats with brick-colored stripes. 
  • B: Set of 8 round placemats with black-colored stripes

Care: Chaguar fabrics do not require special care, are very resistant, and can be washed with water. However, the natural dyes used for coloring may fade. We recommend dry clean only.

"Niwok" seeks to promote the empowerment of the Wichi communities, especially the indigenous women. They are based in El Potrillo, deep in Wichi territory, several miles from Formosa’s capital. They share organizational models and production tools with their members, teach them managerial and administrative skills, and encourage them to be makers of their own destiny. They also conduct workshops on topics such as women’s rights, education, health, sexuality and addictions. All products are crafted using age-old techniques.
