We use our fabric trivets throughout our farmhouse and find that they’re a beautiful way to bring a little of our 1840 Farmhouse Style to any home. They can be used underneath a mug, wine bottle, houseplant, or vase, offering protection to the surface underneath. They are a wonderful way to transform a standard Mason jar or vase into a beautiful vessel for freshly cut flowers from your garden or local farmer's market. They can provide a delightful bit of color to their surroundings, adding a lovely accent to any room.
Other items shown in the photographs are not included in the sale price. Those items were used for photographic purposes only. Their use was intended to show the utility and various uses of the item.
This coiled fabric trivet will be made by hand at 1840 Farm. Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being wrapped around a length of cording. All of the fabric items in our collection display the raw edge of the fabrics used to create it. The fabric wrapped cord is then coiled and stitched together using a zigzag stitch on our sewing machine. I continue to wrap the coil and shape the trivet as it is stitched.
Our fabric items can be cleaned by spot washing or in the gentle cycle of your washing machine. Gently reshape the trivet while still damp and allow to air dry.
Trivets are not fire or flameproof. They are constructed of cording, fabric, and thread. They should not be placed in the microwave, oven, or directly over an open flame or hot burner. We find them to be an excellent buffer between a hot cooking pan and our kitchen counter. As they are made using natural materials, they will eventually conduct some heat, especially when used under extreme conditions. Care should be taken to ensure that they are not damaged and that the surfaces beneath them are adequately protected.
