These linens are the very essence of spring. There is something magical as trees begin to bud and bloom after a long winter, and this design captures that moment when the bare magnolia branches begin to flower. They are painstakingly hand-embroidered with beautiful buds and flowers and stark, leafless branches on soft sand-colored linen with a delicate hemstitch border. The sensitive, artistic use of the multiple shades of white, cream, and pink threads of the flowers, and the russet-colored pods create a vibrant, fresh, dimensional quality that is unparalleled. The flowers are shown in various stages, from tight bud to fully opened, on bare branches that have just the slightest bit of teal thread worked into the different taupes to make them almost shimmer and lift off the fabric.
Napkins/set of 6 : A single branch with buds in various stages of opening and a blossom, corner set. Napkins are 19.5 inches square with a 1.5 inch fine hemstitch border.
A set of 6 placemats: A branch of buds, again in various stages of blooming, and flowers gracefully works its way from the center of the shorter side of the mat to the corner and then turns onto the longer side with a single fully opened bloom floating in the opposite corner. Placemats are 20 × 15 inches with a 2 inch fine hemstitch border.
Runner: Branches of buds in all their stages and flowers are artfully placed in diagonal corners and spread up and out on opposite sides. The runner is 21.5 x 59 inches.
NOTE: Stock and custom sized tablecloths are available. Sprays of fruit on stem in various sizes and stages of development with buds, blossoms, and leaves scattered around the perimeter of the cloth with details in the center. Custom sizes are also available depending on specific table dimensions. Please contact for pricing.
“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.
