Rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant that begins to form in spring and ripens from early summer through fall. These linens are painstakingly hand-embroidered with beautifully rendered ripe rose hips on the stem on crisp white linen with a delicate hemstitch border. The botanical quality of these linens comes from the sensitive, artistic use of the brick and sienna reds of the rose hips detailed with a deep, dark chocolate brown thread spiked with gray, which gives them a rounded, dimensional appearance. The stems take on an almost metallic sheen with shades of brown, taupe, and gray threads finely worked. Completing the design are the thorns and a solitary leaf in shades of green forecasting the coming winter. These linens would look smashing from the first nip of autumn in the air throughout the holiday season, and would make a beautiful addition to your Thanksgiving and/or your Christmas table(s). Of course, there’s no reason why you couldn’t enjoy these napkins all year long, either!

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.
