October is all about harvest color
, and in that vein we'd love to have some of these colorful, sustainably-made hot pads from Nepal on the table. Actually, we'd really like to hang a few on the wall. These nubby, colorful trivets are handmade in Nepal by BNB Crafts, a cottage industry that creates job opportunities for semi-skilled and skilled women to practice traditional Nepalese handicrafts, and to improve their living standards and those of their families.
We just love their bright cheery colors and the soft felt — these are a great accessory for the fall table.
