These linen napkins are an undeniable classic, perhaps the little black dress of napkins! Fads may come and go, and coral, like other trends, has seen its day in the sun peek and subside. But the use of coral as a design motif, both literal and interpreted, has been with us for centuries. From les Louis of France to Tony Duquette of Los Angeles, coral has captivated, and like other classic design elements, I never grow tired of it. These napkins look smashing with blue Canton porcelain dishes, but they can complement any number of dishes and styles. They are painstakingly hand-embroidered with a beautiful branch of coral positioned in the corner. The branch is realized in a true natural coral color rendered in a beautiful satin stitch which makes it almost lift off the fabric.

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 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.
