Browsing through the collection of home accessories at Saarloos this past weekend, I noticed they carried the Simrin brand. I was given some napkins and place mats from this company last year, resembling those at right. Using AZO free dyes and 100% cotton and jute textiles, Simrin makes several fun tabletop items with an "earthy mod" aesthetic.

I am enamored with their farmyard linen collection, featuring different farm animals painted in four different colors on jute place mats. I really wanted to get a set of these, shown below top, as they had them in stock at Saarloos, but they are spot clean only and we are WAY too messy to have something under our dinner plates that isn't machine washable or wipeable. However, I'm still eying the laminated fabric trays, shown below bottom. Cute, no?

You can browse and buy the entire Simrin Collection online at Velocity Art & Design. In addition to the more mod Surya and the Farmyard collection, they also have more traditional looking items, so take a look!
