Linen napkins, with a delicate cloverleaf design and elegant picot stitch. Featuring the soft drape and natural sheen of pure flax yarn.
As the name suggests, the intricate design of this cloth resembles that of a four-leaf clover. Maybe it brings with it the luck of the Irish?
The Cloverleaf fabric design dates as far back as the 1700′s, and has been adapted from an old pattern book of handwoven designs brought by European immigrants to the States.
Linen comes from the flax plant, which grows in the cooler climates of Western and Northern Europe. For centuries it has been the favoured yarn for table linens because of its longevity, crisp texture, beautiful drape and natural sheen.
Linen also has the added benefit of ageing gracefully – softening over time, while maintaining its strength.
These elegant napkins will certainly make a statement at your table, and complement our Cloverleaf Tablecloth.
Mungo sources its linen yarn from an Italian company, Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale – an OEKO-TEX certified supplier that has been in the business of spinning top-quality linen yarn since 1873. Not only does LCN supply us with flax yarn of exceptional quality, but they have an ethos that matches our own – a commitment to ethical and sustainable production.
The Cloverleaf Napkins are designed, woven and made at the Mungo Mill in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. In keeping with our commitment to transparency and traceability, our mill is open to the public. Join us for a free guided tour on weekends.
We commit to upholding fair-trade production principles, in addition to donating 1% of our annual turnover to our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, MOVE.
