This cotton-linen napkin offers the durability and look of linen with the easy-care of cotton. Cotton absorbs up to 27 times its weight in water and linen can soak up to 20% its weight in moisture, so even your messiest dinner guest will walk away spic and span. With wash and wear, the individual fibers of linen actually become stronger and denser, while the overall napkin becomes softer and more comfortable. The blanket is produced in a factory in Belgium, a country filled with fine flax fields that produces more than 60% of the world’s linen supply.
After use, throw these napkins in the water in cold to warm water with a mild detergent. Machine dry on medium temperature. Do not overload the dryer, as linen needs plenty of room to breathe to prevent wrinkling. Line dry if desired. Iron on the highest setting.
Flax plants thrive in the temperate climate of Western Europe. The plants are sown in March and harvested in July. On one special day each year, usually in June, each flax plant flowers for just 24 hours with blooms of blue, purple and white. The flax must be uprooted, not mown, during the July harvest because the root of the plant is full of useful fibers not be wasted. The harvested plants are then left out on the field and exposed to rain, dew, sunshine and dirt, which helps to develop its color and character. After the flax is dry, the fibers are moved indoors, where they are combed, spun into yarn and then woven into linen fabric. These napkins are produced in a linen factory in Belgium that has been weaving since 1864, but constantly reviews its methods and machinery to ensure best-practices for their employees, the environment and their products.
Fabric napkins in a linen-cotton blend woven on Belgium looms. Lightweight, with the highly absorbent qualities of both cotton and linen. Finished with a mitered corner. Sold individually. Also available in olive and beige.
