Parkhaus is a Berlin-based company that manufactures their products exclusively in high-quality pure wool felt. Felt is the oldest fabric known to mankind, predating both weaving and knitting—in Turkey, felt remains have been found that can be dated to at least 6,500 BC. Parkhaus takes felt traditions in a decidedly modern direction. Each piece is precision cut. The wool construction is naturally dirt and moisture resistant. These trivets add a warm, textural note to any table setting and protect surfaces from heat. Clean with a damp sponge. Can also be hand washed and air dried. 5mm thick.
