Product Description

This set of four handmade placemats, simply elegant in white with light orange flowers embroidering the borders. This set is made with rich fabric and durable yet delicate embroidery. The patterns and techniques are handed down from generations of immigrants that came to the northeastern part of Brazil during the second world war from Europe. Each handmade placemat takes quite a bit of time to produce, making each and every piece a one of a kind adornment.

Who made these placemats:

These placemats were produced by a cooperative by the name of COOPARMIL (The Artisan and Industrial Cooperative of Limoeiro Ltda). COOPARMIL was founded on October 22, 1964 by a group of embroiderers and seamstresses. These men and women were encouraged to form this co-op by the Franciscan Sisters of Maristella in Brazil. Although the co-op began by producing clothing, specifically children`s clothing and uniforms for factory employees, they transitioned to handicraft products.

A bit of history:

Due to political unrest during the Nazi regime in Germany, many German nuns went to live in the northeast of Brazil as a cultural exchange with the São Bento monastery. This monastery was located in the city of Olinda, Pernambuco where there was very little trade or industry of any sort. Located on the coast, most of the men of the town were fisherman and the women were housewives. These German nuns began to work with the most economically disadvantaged women of the towns and periphery. The patterns and traditions can be traced back to Europe. This interesting crossover of cultural identity, between Brazilians and Europeans, makes these products even more unique!
