Traditional Mountain Weave 100% Cotton Placemats
A nice addition to my dining room table
I purchased these along with the Mountain Weave table cloth. I noticed some new dings in my table so i purchased both to protect it. As with the table cloth my only complaint is that they aren't as thick as they were decades ago. From reading previous reviews i've come to the conclusion that they were made much better then than now. Other than that they are just what i was looking for with a very simple pattern which doesn't clash with my rug.

Gorgeous place mats
The mint green place mats look great with my white table cloth. I washed them immediately and they did shrink considerably, but now the weave is tight and they are an excellent size. I highly recommend these place mats.

Blue and yellow country kitchen
I just changed my kitchen to blue and yellow and found the prettiest blue, yellow and white placemats. I love the country look and these are perfect on my little farm house kitchen table for two! Also they are very affordable. I recommend these and am very happy with them!

Quality of Mountain Weave cloth WAY down!
I have mountain weave tablecloths, and note that the fabric on the mats I received is significantly thinner than my higher quality items purchased in previous years. I'm concerned about how long these new mats will wear.

Good Quality, but Shrink
We had previously purchased the cranberry and green placements and thought we'd get something similar with these white ones. They are much lighter in weight and also shrink noticeably with first washing. They are well made, serviceable and likely to last. We might have ordered another item if we had known the difference between these and the ones we already had.

Placemats are perfect for me
They lay flat and shrunk verry little when washer.They look great with my violet floured dishes.

beautiful but thin
I ordered these placemats in the cranberry/white. Yes, they shrink when washed, but make sure they are blocked to the size preferred and dry on a rack. They look very nice on the table, but could be a little thicker, especially if the table cannot tolerate excessive heat from the dishes. My table has had the top polyethelene treated in thick coats so the heat doesn't damage it anyway, so the mats work fine for me. I will be ordering more in the future!

Washing makes these fluffy like you remember from the past
I noticed one reviewer was unhappy with these because they arrive totally flat and seem thin. Washing, however, makes all the difference. They really fluff up like the ones I've had in years past.
I like these placemats very much. They aren't as thick and fluffy as an old woven tablecloth I own, but I actually prefer these because the thickness of the tablecloth makes it look too rumpled.
The manufacturer should include directions on washing and drying with every placemat. I dry mine in the dryer on delicate rather than stretching them and line drying, but they are still a nice size and fluffy. Great product; easy care.
