Protect your surfaces with these handmade trivets. To make these the coconut fibre is first plaited and then wound into shape. It is then stitched using a modified drill so that each piece will be long lasting and will not unravel. Coconut fibre has natural anti-bacterial properties and can be rinsed in water, so food spillages are easy to clean up and will not spoil your trivet.

The Arayila Community Company is from Sri Lanka – where all members own a share of the company and its assets. It provides a network for social change and contributes to a school for the hearing impaired. They raised enough funds by 2015 to build an actual factory instead of running out of someones kitchen, and can now employ more women from surrounding areas.
