Napkin

Linnen and  Cotton Napkin

  • Dry on low and remove from the dryer promptly while slightly damp to minimize wrinkles. Smooth and dry flat, or iron on a linen setting if desired. Starch may be used if you prefer a stiffer finish.
  • Use spot remover if necessary, but do not soak in bleach, as any colored embroidery may run.
  • Do not dry clean.

Silk Napkin

  • Machine wash separately in cold water on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent or baby shampoo.
  • Air dry flat and iron damp on a warm setting.
  • Do not bleach or dry clean.

Napkin Rings

Made of varied materials, from beads and brass to natural gemstones and cut glass, our napkin rings are jewelry for the table.
  • Wipe clean with damp cloth.
  • Use a soft toothbrush with mild soapy water for plastic and glass beaded napkin rings if necessary.
  • Do not soak wood beaded napkin rings in water.
  • Do not use citrus-based cleaners on metal napkin rings.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners or scrubbers.
A NOTE ABOUT OUR NATURAL STONE NAPKIN RINGS:
Our collection includes napkin rings made of natural gemstones, including agate, rock crystal, and pyrite. As naturally occurring stones, no two napkin rings will be alike, even within a set of four.
A NOTE ABOUT OUR HAND CARVED AND HAND PAINTED NAPKIN RINGS

Our collection also includes napkin rings that are hand-crafted from wood and stone, and may be hand-carved and hand-painted as well. This artisanal touch means that no two will be exactly alike.

Placemats & Runners

Use a Gentle Touch
Our beaded products are assembled and meticulously threaded, beaded, wired, or sewn by hand. Like a beaded or sequined couture garment, gentle handling will help ensure the lasting beauty of your purchase.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on beaded placemats, chargers, runners, or coasters as plastic beads may melt, glass beads may crack, or finishes may be damaged.
  • To minimize the chance of beads being torn or ripped off the backing, place plates and utensils gently on the item.
  • To get the exact colors and finishes we intend in our designs, many beads, embellishments, and surfaces are dyed or finished with special coatings. To keep the color/finish from scratching or rubbing off, avoid sliding dishes and heavy serving pieces across the item, and do not use abrasive cleansers or cloths when spot cleaning.
Cleaning
Our beaded placemats, runners, and coasters are backed in cotton and can be spot cleaned if necessary. Use a soft toothbrush dipped in soapy water to remove stains, blot dry, and iron on the back with a low iron to finish. Do not immerse products with wood beads or embellishments in water.
Replacement Beads
Occasionally, beads, sequins, and other embellishments may break or fall off of your item even with gentle use. While we do not provide a repair service, we do include replacement beads with most of our beaded items for you or your seamstress to use in case a repair is needed.

Capiz Shell and Shimmer Placemats

These beautiful Kim Seybert classics can serve as placemats or chargers. Round and Ombre Capiz Placemats are made from hand-cut and assembled capiz shells, then hand-dyed (with the exception of the Natural color) to the beautiful hues we offer each season to complement virtually any china and table décor. Then the mats are coated in a thick smooth gloss resin finish. Shimmer Placemats are made from crushed capiz shells, then hand-dyed (with the exception of the Natural color) and coated in a thick gloss resin finish. Because of the nature of the crushed shells, Shimmer Placemats have a slightly rippled surface.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on Capiz or Shimmer placemats.
  • Clean with a damp cloth (and mild soap if necessary).
  • Stack carefully when not in use to avoid chips and cracks.

Acrylic Placemats

These placemats arrive with a protective film backing which should be removed prior to use. Acrylic scratches very easily.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on acrylic placemats.
  • Clean with a soft, disposable lint-free cloth and a cleaner made specifically for acrylic.
  • Do not use paper towels, scrubbers, or polyester or rayon wipes which are slightly abrasive and can scratch the finish.
  • Do not use window or countertop cleaners, or solvents such as rubbing alcohol which may leave a film or fog on the product.
  • Should scratches appear, gently buff out using scratch remover formulated for acrylic products.
  • Store in the protective sleeves provided or between tissue or lint-free cloth.

Polypropylene Placemats & Runners

These items are made from two-ply polypropylene and are water-resistant.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on polypropylene placemats.
  • Clean with a damp cloth (and mild soap if necessary).
  • Avoid abrasive cleansers or cloths when cleaning.
  • Do not pull, stretch, or fold.
  • Avoid placing very heavy objects on top of the items to prevent indentations.

Wood and Bamboo Placemats

Like other fine wood accessories, our wood and bamboo placemats have a lustrous finish that enhances the beautiful woodgrain patterns in the wood. Some styles may be hand-dyed, and due to the nature and varying porousness of each piece of wood, color may vary even within the same mat.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on wood placemats to avoid scorching.
  • Wipe clean with a damp cloth or wood cleaner/polish.
  • Avoid using abrasive cloths.
  • Do not immerse in water.

Leather Placemats

Our leather placemats are made of genuine leather, so color variations are natural and no two will be alike.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on our leather placemats.
  • Wipe clean with a damp cloth and allow to air dry thoroughly.
  • Avoid using abrasive cloths.
  • Do not immerse in water.
  • Once dry, store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.

Enamel Chargers

Our chargers are handcrafted in metal and some styles feature hand-applied high-gloss enamel that will make your table glimmer.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on metal or enamel chargers.
  • Clean with a damp cloth (and mild soap if necessary).
  • Do not use citrus-based cleaning products.
  • Stack carefully when not in use to avoid dents, or chips and cracks in the enamel finish.

Lacquered, Carved, or Painted Medium Density  Fibreboard (MDF) Placemats

Our distinctive MDF styles can serve as placemats or chargers. MDF is a thick, stiff wood product that can be cut, carved, and finished in many ways to make a strong visual backdrop for your favorite china and flatware. Hand-Painted and Hand-Carved MDF Placemats are cut, carved, and painted by hand. No two will be exactly alike. Our Fez MDF Placemats are finished with either paint or metallic foil leaf, then coated in high-gloss lacquer.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on MDF placemats.
  • Clean with a damp cloth (and mild soap if necessary).
  • Avoid using abrasive cloths.
  • Do not immerse in water.

Faux Snakeskin and shagreen Placemats

These placemats offer luxurious textures that are easy to care for, made with polypropylene and stitched to a stiff polyvinyl chloride backing.
  • Do not place hot dishes, cookware, or utensils on polypropylene placemats.
  • Clean with a damp cloth (and mild soap if necessary).
  • Avoid abrasive cleansers or cloths when cleaning.
  • Avoid placing very heavy objects on top of the items to prevent indentations.

Linen Placemats & Runners

Our fabric placemats are as easy to care for as our linen napkins.
  • Machine wash separately in cool water on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent.
  • Dry on low and remove from the dryer promptly while slightly damp to minimize wrinkles. Smooth and dry flat, or iron on a linen setting if desired. Starch may be used if you prefer a stiffer finish.
  • Use spot remover if necessary, but do not soak in bleach, as any colored embroidery may run.
  • Do not dry clean.
