Pineapple Linen Napkin Set - Textured Black
Growing up, our dinner table was always set with cloth napkins. Where some families save them for special occasions or holidays, we used cloth napkins at every meal.
Not only does this old-fashioned tradition keep me connected to my mom's country kitchen and to my Midwestern roots, it's also a simple way to cut down on single use paper waste.
I hope these napkins become a part of your family tradition too, and accompany you at meal time for years to come.

About the print:
Our pineapple print is a simple, preppy take on the classic symbol of aloha. Long known as the symbol of hospitality, the first pineapple is said to have arrived to the islands in the early 1500's. Originating from South America (Brazil &/or Paraguay) centuries ago, pineapples first made their way on trading ships headed for the Caribbean, Australia, China and Europe... It's thought that the first pineapple was brought to the Big Island on a European ship in 1527. Fated to become a lasting icon of the islands and an industry that would both rise and fall, the pineapple has long since remained a symbol of the plantation era of Hawaii as well as one of hospitality and aloha.
