Supple, silver-hued birch bark -- it's that rare raw material that can be made into a wedding invitation just as well as into a watertight canoe. We love setting a table with it for an easy rustic look. The bark, which comes in 12-inch squares, can work as individual place mats or lined up as a table runner. Plus, it really does grow on trees, so you don't need to stress over spilled drinks.
