Our Byzantine Jewel placemats are inspired by traditional arabesque pomegranate patterns used in turkish tiles. Byzantine is a floral ornamental pattern that evokes tulips, pomegranate and ribbons-- themes commonly throughout history in Ottoman decorative arts such as tile-work and ceramics. I love the idea of having placemat transport one to a place of fantasy and imagination, which can be achieved in mere minutes or hours, in less time than getting on a plane to Morocco or Bodrum or Istambul. This placemat is for the über chic hostess.
