    Beautiful table linens and more.

    Posted by Joyce on Sep 27th 2017

    This set of placemats and napkins is beautiful and exactly what I needed for my new kitchen table. The package came gift-wrapped with a geometric design printed onto recycled paper. A worry doll was attached to the ribbon along with an explanation of the doll's use and history in Mayan culture. The napkins are on the small side but perfectly matched with the placemats. If needed, it would be easy to find additional napkins that coordinate well. I am very happy with this purchase, the wrapping paper and worry doll enhanced my pleasure. It felt like I had bought myself a present and somebody gave me an additional gift. Thank you Senor Eladio Chiroy!
