pure linen

Even the most modest meal is enhanced by its environment –  candle light, real china, and linen napkins... 
 
We use cloth napkins all the time at our house. It is nice not to contribute to the landfill more than necessary and they just look and feel better than paper. For everyday use we have a stack of cotton napkins at the ready, but for festive occasions I love to set the table with my linen napkins. They are not as delicate as they look. Ketchup and red wine spills are their worst enemies, but soaking them in hot water and mild detergent right away keep them from staining.
 
Japanese maple leaves fall randomly across the bottom part of these napkins. They are printed in fresh shades of green on natural off-white linen. The napkins are generously sized and finished with mitered corners and decorative top stitching. They are available in my etsy shop, and I hope to add more varieties of dinner napkins later this spring.
