Serve your paella with this classic esparto tray - a beautiful way to display your creation and to protect your table.
Dried esparto grass has been used for thousands of years in Spain. It was integral to the olive oil pressing process until a few decades ago, when the esparto mats were replaced with more modern materials. It was also used to make saddles, durable bags and hundreds of other uses.
Now this ancient tradition can be part of your home. We hang ours on the wall as a decoration when not in use - the intricate weaving and natural grass remind us of the rustic inns we have visited in Spain.
Very few people weave esparto in modern times, your purchase supports and endangered craft.
