These very refined pure linen napkins feature the hand-printed Three Stripes design of the celebrated Italian artisans at Stamperia Bertozzi. It is a fine art to be able to create stripes that are evenly spaced and so beautifully printed. But at the same time, the artisans at Bertozzi haven’t tried to make the design look too perfect – it has lots of character and you see the effects of the artist’s handcrafted technique. For example, at the intersection of the lines you see the way the artisan has layered up the stripes. It is details like these that distinguish a special artisan creation like this from other napkins.
The combination of the design and the very fine linen creates an aesthetic that is both classic and contemporary. The delightfully soft, organic crumpled linen used to make these napkins is the very highest quality, traditionally woven linen, which looks very refined and feels incredibly elegant. So they complement any occasion, from the formal to the more relaxed.
Since 1920, the Bertozzi family have been creating the most wonderful hand-printed and hand-painted fabrics. Using traditional techniques, these master artisans hand-carve blocks of pear wood to produce the stamps they use to print their own designs onto the fabric. The rich and vibrant colours they hand-mix come from closely guarded family recipes that are passed from generation to generation.
Variations in finish or appearance are not considered imperfections, but are the mark of a unique handmade item.
