Moso Placemat Set
A set of four cream Moso placemat sets. To go around a beautiful table that hosts beautiful conversations! Goes great with our pocket napkins!
Moso means “pieces” in Haitian Creole; products in this collection are made up of many pieces of up-cycled fabric. Every month, tons of used and overstock clothing is shipped from developed countries, like the US, to developing countries, like Haiti, where they are either sold by local vendors or sent to the landfill. So, we go to the market where we purchase the clothing from the local vendors. (win #1: local commerce!) We bring them home to the 2nd Story backyard and hand wash each piece in big tubs. Next, we hang them in the sun to dry. Then we bring them to the design table and cut and sew them back together to make each fabulous, one of a kind piece of art. (win #2: providing living wage jobs!) Because of this, they are no longer destined to be thrown away (win #3: the environment!) and now are going to be given a new home with you! (win #4: fashion!)

Who We Are
Kumiho co is an Oregon-based company that is focused on bringing attention to small North American artists and brands. We are passionate about providing modern, eco-friendly, and sustainable home décor.
Our name, Kumiho, was inspired by the Korean legend and folktale of the nine-tailed fox. The nine-tailed fox was known for its longevity and accumulation of energy. This is what we represent, creating a long-lasting relationship between artists and our website audience with the energy to curate products amongst this class of people.
Also, legend holds that the Kumiho is distinguished by its "yeo woo guseul" which consists of in-depth knowledge. This depicts our knowledge base in both the industry and in curating products for home décor.
What We Do
Each brand we bring to our site has a unique story or product. Before we get it out to our website audience, we engage in the proper vetting of all products for quality and assurance.
We have curated collections for your home décor that adds the touch of beauty that you’ve always dreamt of. This is what we do and are known for. We remain the bridge between artist and consumer.
In summary we:
- Find ethically sourced brands and artists with a unique story

- Bring together a collection of trendy home décor with the quality to back it up
- Constantly search for cool new brands to bring to showcase. Like handcrafted Tunisian ceramics or upcycled textiles made by fair trade artisans in Bangladesh
