Maman Set of 3 Trays, Teal

  • £108.00

These stunning Maman trays are handcrafted with love by female artisans in Persia using date palm leaves and kertak. Inspired by Iranian mosaic work, these handwoven trays feature geometric diamond patterns in vivid, contrasting colours. Group the trays together for a vibrant wall display, arrange together on shelves for a layered look, or reimagine traditional tableware with something that offers an interesting twist.

This joyful collection of trays radiate the rich spirit of the women of Iran; that of life, passion and tradition. Created in bright, cheerful colours that reflect the emotion of the artisan who created it, every piece offers a window into the world of the ancient Iranian art of Kapu weaving, a craft kept alive by female artisans for thousands of years.
