Textures and Placemats

Harini Chandrasekar

Unexpectedly stumbling upon old forgotten projects is somewhat similar to finding money in an old coat consigned to oblivion. No doubt equally gratifying! That was precisely what I felt when I chanced upon these place mats designed nearly five years ago.

It began as an experiment dabbling with a variety of textures- weaves, prints, laminated paper and reeds. Tinkering around with all that I could find in my earlier studio, it was  a lot of fun to create this playful and harmonious collection of dining mats intended to protect any surface. I hope you guys like them as much I enjoyed walking down memory lane through these images.
