If you are looking for character and elegance, the Christmas placemats from the Always Christmas collection are ideal.

They are inspired by 2 designs (reindeer and mistletoe) in gold and meticulous in their detail, giving your table a sophisticated touch on a par with Christmas.

They are the perfect choice for decorating Christmas tables. You can combine them with the Christmas napkins from the same collection: those of the 11x11cm and 20x20cm sizes include 4 designs (reindeer, bell, fir tree and mistletoe) and those of 32x32cm have the same drawings as the placemats.

The entire Always Christmas collection is manufactured in 50% linen and 50% cotton, seamless, pleasant to touch and highly absorbent.

Due to its gold details, you can include decorative elements of the same colour such as the cutlery and crockery. You can also adorn the table with Christmas details such as small bunches of mistletoe, pine cones or small golden stars sprinkled over the table. And, if you want, you can inspire yourself with the decoration from the cover image, with this collection as the main feature.

Green Tartan Christmas placemats, for the more traditional

If you are someone who loves all that is classical, the Green Tartan Christmas placemats will be your best bet.

The traditional design of Scottish tartan of the cotton napkins and the placemats of the Green Tartan collection, alongside the English green, will stand out on any table. They will accompany your special Christmas dishes with elegance!
