Crafted in India exclusively for World Market, our Chili Pepper Khadi Placemats are made from 100% hand-spun, hand-woven cotton. The richly dyed cotton is spun into threads on a spinning wheel called a charkha, creating a lovely textured backdrop for your table setting. In the 1920s, Mahatma Gandhi began promoting khadi, which means cotton in Indian, as a way to strengthen India's economy. Khadi holds sentimental value for Indians to this day.
