Napkins, 2018

This is a Napkins. It was designed by Mary Ping and made by Slow and Steady Wins the Race and PYE. It is dated 2018. Its medium is water-repellent cotton.

As an homage to the impact of Marguerita Mergentime’s textiles, the napkins are designed to reveal important phrases once unfolded—a memento to carry on the conversation after the dinner table. The water-repellent cotton is fully manufactured from seed to final product by PYE, a global innovator in the textile industry.

This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition Tablescapes: Designs for Dining.
