why this product

Cradle your drink with this cocktail napkin, handsewn in a mill in County Down, Ireland, that has been producing Irish linen for over 50 years. Linen gets softer and stronger the more it’s used, due to its inherent bond with water. The flax plant, from which linen is woven, grows best in humid climate and moist soil. The very first process in linen fiber production is to soak the harvested flax in pools of water, thus rotting away the stem bark to access the fibers. This association with water and moisture continues over time, as linens are repeatedly washed. The more you use the material, the better it gets. 

use & care

Hand wash or machine wash in warm water. Press with warm iron while damp, then allow to fully air dry.

production & design

When Ireland native Damien Hannigan and his partner Joy Fu began researching the history of their home base of Cootehill, they discovered the area was a major linen producer during the 19th-century, before the industry dispersed to other towns. Each collection the couple creates is a small capsule of limited edition raw linen pieces. Their materials come from a number of mills throughout Northern Ireland, which are all located near Damien’s childhood home. He and Joy visit the mills quite regularly to source fabrics for upcoming collections and collaborations. All products are sewn by hand in Ireland, most of them handmade by Joy. The production process begins with choosing the color palette and tone for each collection, selecting and testing the fabrics based on weight, color and natural characteristics, and finally quality testing upon completion.
