Like the rendering of the fruit on the lemon linens, these vibrant oranges are picture-perfect. These linens are painstakingly hand-embroidered with beautiful fruit, blossoms and foliage on crisp white linen with a large hemstitch border. What sets this design apart form others in the collection is that the oranges are represented in three stages of growth: the green stage, where the fruit is fully formed, yet not ripe; the yellow stage, where the fruit has begun to ripen; and the mature orange stage, where the fruit is ready to be picked. WIth these linens on your table, you can see the oranges ripen before your eyes! The sensitive, artistic use of the multiple shades of orange, yellow and green threads create a vibrant, fresh, dimensional quality that is unparalleled. The fruit is rounded, the leaves flip and turn on themselves, and the blossoms even have the slightest bit of blush and fine knot-work to to render them almost fragrant!

I believe in linen. It has an elegance and drape that no other fiber can match, and with a minimum of care, fine linen will last and be enjoyed for generations. These 100% linen napkins, mats, runners and cloths carry the Masters of Linen tag, which guarantees that they are made with the finest quality linen produced in the European Union in harmony with environmental policies. With each washing, the fabric will become even more soft and supple.
