Vintage French Overdyed Embroidered Napkins (Set of 4)
These are to dye for.
All items from the Food52 Vintage Shop are final sale. Items may vary slightly from what is pictured.
With that ultra-rich hue, luxe-feeling fabric, and gorgeous monogram work, you may be asking yourself, “Where have these napkins been all my life?” And the answer would be the French countryside—since that’s exactly where we found ‘em. These vintage linens come straight from flea markets in France and are embroidered with their original family’s initials. Oh, and they’re hand-dyed in the deepest shade of grey (which, ahem, is pretty perfect for disguising spills).
