Hand to Mouth

There is nothing stylish about wiping.

Unless it’s with a Natsumi napkin.

Of course, something this adorable has Japanese roots — designer Natsumi Nishizumi was born and raised there. After moving to New York, she earned a degree in graphic design and honed her skills at Condé Nast.

Her love of fashion, food, and Japan’s natural beauty merge in her line of table linens. Screen printed by hand with water-based inks on organic linen, the place mats, napkins, and coasters define contemporary elegance.

There’s one simple design in three colors (yellow, pink, green) — perfect for fostering a less-is-more approach to wiping.

Though hopefully not in all areas.
