The Selvage Serviette range includes 16 different colourways. Used either as a set in one colour or as originally intended as a mixed range. This quirky idea came from a family holiday, when laundry was not high priority and serviettes were reused for a few evenings in a row. This way, assigning each family member a colour, no cross contamination and confusion could arise over who’s serviette was who’s. We think that is pretty neat!
Individually woven from pure linen yarn on the restored Ruti shuttle looms. One of the things that differentiates a shuttle looms from the more modern rapier looms is their ability to weave true selvedge – a tightly woven ‘self finished’ edge that runs lengthwise along a fabrics edge. This prevents the fabric from fraying or unraveling. Attractive and practical at the same time.
