These placemats were purchased at a significant discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.  My words are absolutely my own and I have no affiliation with the company.

First off, the placemats are fairly rigid. I thought they would be a little less stiff, but as I found out – it makes them much easier to clean.  So that’s a positive.  They’re very nice looking, deep rich black color – something that I’d expect at Crate and Barrel or Pier One Imports.  They have nice detail to them and don’t absorb spills or stains.  Literally, wipe them off and they’re ready to use again.  I’ve used cloth ones and they’re so difficult to keep clean – these are the exact opposite.  Perfect for kids to make a mess on!
