Generously sized White Selvedge Serviettes, woven from pure linen yarn with a woven stripe detail.
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, by assigning each family member a colour, no cross contamination and confusion could arise over whose serviette was whose! We think that is pretty neat.
These serviettes are individually woven from pure linen yarn on the restored Ruti shuttle looms. One of the things that differentiates 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 fabric’s edge. This prevents the fabric from fraying or unraveling.
Attractive, practical and fit for the whole gang.
