{new term} passementerie place mats

I’m on a serious place mat kick right now.  I just purchased a set by Liora Manne and now I’m thinking about getting a set of these passementerie place mats by Juliana Meija too.

Passementerie (according to Wikipedia) is the art of making elaborate trimmings or edgings of applied braid, gold or silver cord, embroidery, colored silk, or beads. Though this detail is usually seen in furniture, lamp shades, and drapes,  Juliana Mejia brings this beautiful craft to the kitchen table through these handmade  place mats, napkins, and beaded napkin rings.
