These beautiful handwoven pieces of fabric can be cut into individual placemats or cut to size as a table runner. Handmade in Nepal from the "allo" plant or stinging nettle, unlike Australia, it is not a weed in Nepal and grows naturally at altitude to stabilise the mountains from landslide. The plant yields strong and long fibres which have been used for generations to make products such as bags, clothes and fishing nets. It is harvested using natural and traditional methods before it is spun into this environmentally friendly fibre.
