Capiz Table Mats
Therse tablemats look really good, shame that there is a note included not to put items on them that come staright from oven. That is exactly what I want placemats for, to protect my table from hot plates straight from oven.
They are not cheap at £10 each and not really fit for purpose.
I had to return two as piece completely missing from side of one revealing cardboard underneath and the other had a piece of mother of pearl sticking out from edge which was sharp and kept catching and would eventually have broken off.
They are so pretty that I kept the remainder but will only be able to use them for cold meals. Really, really disappointing and not M and S usual standard for homeware. Perhaps I will take them all back , but they are so lovely in appearance.

These are beautiful when perfect
I purchased 2 sets of mats and 2 sets of coasters. The coasters were fine. I had to send the mats back as one was chipped and the other had black dots on them which I couldn't erase. I thought as they are placemats I do not want marks on mats because it looks like I haven't cleaned them properly.
I subsequently purchased 2 more and they are not perfect. There are black dots on one and marks on the other one.
I have purchased 8 in the past (which were all perfect) and as my Daughter admired them they were to be a present for her birthday
These will have to be returned which is a nuisance as I am a Pensioner who doesn't go out much, it kind of defeats the whole object of buying on line don't you think!,

Shell table mats
These are very pretty simple shell table mats. The shell gives the mat a lovely lustre almost like mother of pearl.
The colour is tinged with a yellow tone so it does not appear as white as in the image which is a shame, guess this is because it is a natural material, but they do look great on the table.
The surface is slightly uneven but not enough to cause unbalance to a small based vase. I have stood a tall narrow based glass vase on it without any problems.
