Picture this, it’s a lazy Sunday afternoon. A delicious lunch spread has been laid out on a table decked with sparkling silverware, fresh and fragrant posies (and Mungo table linen of course).
Soft music wafts through the open doors. A warm breeze sweeps through the house, carrying with it the smell of a delicious roast chicken and freshly baked bread – crisp and golden brown from the oven. It’s a family lunch affair in full swing.
As plates of veggies and grandma’s famous gravy are passed around, your serviette goes missing. Oh no! Your fingers are sticky with the pickings of the feast! Where is it?
It’s not on your lap. It’s not on your seat. It’s not underneath the table. Ahh…wait a minute. Isn’t uncle Pete over there using your serviette to wipe the crumbs from his moustache!? Ag neeee.
Such was the inspired idea behind our Selvedge Serviettes. With their distinctive bold stripe, each dinner guest can pick their favourite colour. No more feuding over whose serviette is whose. No more risk of Tannie Maria blowing her nose on your napkin. Lunch salvaged. (See what we did there?)
These Mungo staples are woven from 100% linen – a fabric praised for its longevity and soft handle. Linen also absorbs moisture instantly, so you won’t find yourself in a pickle if your water glass gets knocked over.
Woven on our antique ruti looms, the Selvedge Serviettes take their name from their ‘true selvedge’ edge – a tightly woven ‘self-finished’ edge that prevents the fabric from unravelling. The term ‘self-finished’ means that the item doesn’t need any extra finishing (such as a hem) to prevent fraying.
Our Selvedge Serviettes are generously sized and come in a stunning 12-colour palette. This means there’s a shade for any season, any setting or any guest. You can opt for one colour, pick pairs or mix and match – whatever floats your gravy boat.
Not only will these guys add an elegant touch to your table setting, but they’ll minimise any confusion at the table. Score!
