Check out the other photos of the placemats because there are over 27 designs that are hot. The one shown is "grid" and is not my favorite. Each design is taken from an organic inspiration like: stream, tangle, pebbles and floral - with a couple more complex like birds n' trees and damask. Quite lovely. Thinking they would compliment my wood table perfectly or any solid color to allow the design to shine. Heat proof to over 400*F (250*C).
