Over 90 years of history

With the experience of over 90 years creating premium quality tableware, Pimpernel placemats have become one of the leaders in the table top field. Starting out in the north of England in 1933 Pimpernel were then acquired by the larger Portmeirion group earlier in the current century.

The Pimpernel brand has been built on the experience and knowledge of various generations. The result is the ability to produce high quality place mats and coasters that discerning homeowners are keen to have in their homes.

Tabletop protection with Pimpernel placemats

The primary reason for buying any set of placemats is to protect your furniture, especially your wooden dining table, from getting damaged from the inevitable spills and scratches that can occur at any mealtime, no matter how careful our dinner guests are. The hidden source of damaged tables is the heat from hot plates which can leave a heat ring on varnished surfaces.

Pimpernel placemats are thick enough with a hardboard center to prevent heat from getting through to the table, the base of the place mats has a soft cork backing. This cork-backed material serves two purposes, it stops heat and also prevents the place mats from sliding around even on the shiniest of surfaces, without affecting your dining table.

The rigid placemat is then topped off with a hard glazed surface which is heat resistant to about 212F, this ensures the artwork underneath the surface does not get damaged when cared for correctly. By simply wiping the surface of the place mats with a damp cloth after use and making sure there is no excess moisture left on them, then a set of Pimpernel placemats and coasters should be able to look great and protect your furniture for many years.
