This Beach Exercise / Picnic Mat is a multipurpose folding extra long and wide straw floor mat woven on a traditional hand-loom using locally available reed called madur kathi in West Bengal; a smart combination of natural fibers and contemporary design.
In an attempt to restore the craft of chatai or reed / grass mats and to help the crafts sector become a viable income source for village-based artisans, this mat has been handcrafted by highly skilled artisans.
These mats can be washed and cleaned easily. This delicately woven mat from West Bengal is no less than a miracle. Known as Masland mats, this is made of locally sourced river grass, it takes months to get these intricate weaves right, before they get ready to add warmth and class to the space they occupy.
