Mixed Print Napkins

I’m a total napkin weirdo these days. A few years ago, in the early days of Kickstarter, I helped fund a project that Diva from Linea Carta was doing to finance the production of her new line. The reward was a set of beautiful linen napkins/tea towels that I have been using every day since. I used to just rip off a paper towel every night to use as my dinner napkin (I know), but something about those cloth napkins changed the way I eat from top to bottom. They inspired me to set a proper table space and eat more slowly and thoughtfully. Now I pick up little napkins here and there (these are my next favorite type) to use for mealtime, and they’ve become my favorite everyday luxury. These colorful napkins at Leif are right up my alley because they’re fun, full of pattern and color and won’t break the bank. Each of these 19.5″ square linen/cotton napkins comes as part of a set (in three color options) for $24. I’d love to swap a few of these in for the spring; they’d look especially cute on our office table, so I might have to grab a few for team lunches.

Your post has inspired me to pull out some of my bright fabrics & make a few table napkins. Like you, we almost always use paper towels for our napkins at meal times. These napkins are just the ticket to brighten up dinner time!

Nice! My favorite set of cloth napkins have a common color theme, but all different prints like these.

Thanks for sharing these! At dinner last night we used paper napkins; you know, the ones that you buy in bulk. They didn’t look very good next to our fancy china and fresh flowers. These are so pretty. I think I’m going to start a collection.

Many years ago, an Argentine friend taught me the joy of serving trays and cloth napkins. Even Trader Joe’s from the microwave felt special at her home. To this day, we use cloth napkins for every meal, and carry snacks to my little guy on happy Ikea trays.

Kudos to the artists! Haven’t bought paper napkins since college days some 35 years ago. Loving these and all the unbelievable , beautiful thrift store linen finds out there as well. Two kids grew up with my obsession- they had to set the table, help launder and fold, even make our own. Now in their twenties, they are carrying on this eco- friendly culture. So proud!

Oh I love these! I also like how napkins can change your attitude towards enjoying your meal. I am making more of an effort to sit and eat away from my desk at lunch.

Lovely napkins. I’ve always used cloth or linen napkins-when dinner is at the table! Nothing fancy but love the double benefits-ecological and aesthetic. Thanks for the great post-will have to check these out!

Using paper towels can be a hard habit to break…But wow cloth napkins are so much moer fun and better for the planet! It’s a win/win. Nice Article! David
