To support senior members in the Korean Gyubang sewing community in Toronto who have many years of sewing experience and excellent skills, Soocha Tea introduces their artwork. All proceeds go towards the artists themselves for their hard work.

They are easy to wrinkle and will breakdown if sharply folded. It's best to store flat.
Gentle hand-wash only in warm water. Do not squeeze or wring out. Wash dark colours separately. Lay flat to dry. Iron at 180-200 ºC (linen).
In order to keep the wavy shape of the edges of the placemats, iron by slightly pulling the mat by the edges in one direction and then moving the iron to the next part and pulling the edges in the other direction, and repeat until all the way around.
