At Palapala Designs, we create a variety of drink mats that feature smaller blockprint carvings. Each drink mat is individually hand printed and sewn here on Maui. Every style is made with thick liner layers so that condensation doesn’t soak through to the table! All are approximately 4.5 inch square, are sold in pairs, and add a nice touch to any home.
