Napkins with Patterned Tracking

  • Unit price per 

Weave these napkins that look complex to but are actually very easy to weave.

Tracking is a change in a fabric that occurs during washing, causing random diagonal ridges to rise on the surface of the cloth producing the effect of a very complex twill stucture, when in fact, the fabric is woven in plain weave.

We consider tracking a magical gift from the weaving gods, so give these napkins a try!

These generous sized napkins can be used as bread basket liners or lap tablecloths for casual dining. A great way to go paper-free in your home!
