Shipping calculated at checkout.
These napkins come in sets of 4. They are called Scrap Napkins because we weave them using the short ends of cotton yarns leftover from the warping process: waste material recaptured and recombined into an irregular stripe whose rhythm varies from napkin to napkin.
The name of each colorway refers to the time on the clock when the colors of the stripe most resemble the sky in the winter months.Machine washable, warm iron if needed.
Dimensions: 18"x 18" each
Materials: 100% cotton


The Weaving Mill

(Humboldt Park)

The Weaving Mill is an artist-run industrial weaving studio in Chicago. They make limited runs of woven home goods and apparel, focusing on creative use of deadstock, scrapped, and recycled yarns, as well as supply-chain-forward contemporary materials. In partnership with social services agency Envision Unlimited, they provide textile education workshops for adults with developmental disabilities and host an experimental artist residency program. Through their projects, textile and otherwise, they aim to fill the space between the hand and industrially made and bring the mechanics of textile production into wider view.
