Vintage Grey and Peach Embroidered Cotton Napkins - Scalloped Edge with Floral Embroidery - Set of Two
In design as in life, what is unseen often drives what is exposed in the light. Ray Booth
Cloth napkins. There must be billions of them floating around the world. Tucked in drawers, lying on tables, hung up for display. Maybe they get used frequently or not nearly enough. We can all argue that it is easier to use and discard a paper napkin over something that needs washing and ironing and storing but we can't argue the fact that it is just plain nicer to use a soft cloth napkin during mealtime instead of something rough and unremarkable. Like Ray booth's quote above, cloth napkins talk more about you than themselves, which is where all the fun comes in when you collect vintage ones. Maybe you collect a certain color, or style, or designer. Or maybe you like thematic ones, or fancy ones or the plain go-with- anything ones. Whichever you like best says a lot about you and your personal style.
This pair of vintage cotton napkins contain a graceful hand-embroidered wildflower in the colors of peach and teal green. With a grey scalloped edge, they are simple yet stylish and instantly make any plate setting all the more elegant. Sure you could use a paper napkin at your next meal but why would you when there are pretty cloths like this out floating around the world?
