Crocheted in a Jute and Cotton blend, this mat is decorated in retro colour choices and features a woven twill binding. Inspired by the even stitches of Sashiko embroidery, it brings back memories of family days out at the beach and the comforting feel of soft, well-worn fabrics. A practical carry strap adds an extra dimension.
