GJ Cook – Placemats

“A common desire, the result of a unique project.”

About 3 years ago, we developed round leather placemats for the private chef Jeremy Girvan of GJ COOK. Then, this collaboration has become very special for us. In fact it marked our first steps in the world of gastronomy and collaborations with renowned chefs.

In the desire to exchange an idea and realise a unique product, we simplified and adapted our placemats. They are created in a bovine collar leather with a vegetable tanning in Belgium. Moreover, the leather is soaked in a bath of tallow. This bring it a fat side and an additional resistance to the water, greases and possible spots.

Sold in sets of 2 (2 subplates + 2 coasters), 4 or 6, they are available in 3 colours (Bordeaux, Black or Havana) in our shop in Brussels, on our e-shop and at Heritage House in Antwerp. You can also buy them in Paris during our EXKRATO event.

Do not hesitate to come and discover this new realisation signed NIYONA x GJ COOK.
