This set of four pretty cocktail napkins have been handwoven in India using the finest imported Belgian flax. Our pure linen napkins feature an eyelash fringe on their side edges, and they have been stone washed to soft perfection, creating added texture and character.
Our Fair Trade artisan partner employs a full-time team of over 85 artisans in Kerala and New Delhi, India to create this line of cocktail napkins. The craftspeople receive on-site training and above-average wages, free lunch and access to interest-free loans. Using the imported Belgian flax, the team weaves the linen on traditional Indian handlooms. They dye the linen using a multi-generational process before washing the textiles with volcanic stone in order to loosen the linen’s natural fiber and create the napkins’ soft finish.
This cocktail napkin is approximately 12" x 12" with a frayed, eyelash fringe. 100% Belgian linen.
Each napkin has been individually loomed by hand and no two are exactly alike. Due to the handmade nature of each piece, there may be small marks and variations that add to the item’s patina, and tell a story of its unique history and significance.

This napkin is 100% linen. Machine wash cold with like colors or separately. Do not bleach. Tumble dry low. Use a warm iron if needed.
