Recycled Newspaper Hot Mat
Handmade in Baguio City, Philippines
These hot mats are made by an innovative new process that turns old newspapers into new and beautiful products by wrapping the paper into coils and forming them into spiraled square building blocks. The building blocks are then joined together with thread and/or glue to make the various items. All the products are then starched to make them hard and shiny. They make for great conversation.
Handmade by the Women's Multipurpose Cooperative in Baguio City, the center helps women work together in groups, obtain government help in skills training, buy raw materials, provide access to low interest loans and obtain titles to their land.
The Recycled Newspaper Hot Mats are 6 inch square and weighs 3 ounces. Simply wipe with damp cloth to clean. We’ve tested them and should stand up to heat and moisture that comes with average use.
