Napkin Haithabu - 258
Our pure linen napkins inspire with their fine feel in a variety of patterns. The napkins are cut individually, which means that, if a grand pattern was chosen, each one is unique and features a different detail. The three-centimetre-wide border of our napkins is finished with eyelet embroidery - a design which is known as a hemstitch.
- 100% linen
- distinctive fabric quality

The right care
You needn’t worry too much about the correct care of linen products. As long as you follow a few simple tips, you will continue to enjoy our products for a long time. Do not overfill the drum, and do not use water-saving programmes. Although we recommend a washing temperature of 40 °C, our products can also be washed at 60 °C without any problem. It is best to use mild liquid detergent without fabric brighteners or softeners, and at low spin speeds. Linen is best ironed while it is still damp.
- Linen loves to be washed
- We recommend a washing temperature of 40 °C or 60 °C
- Water-saving programmes are harmful to products made of natural fibres
- Avoid using water-saving programmes
Haithabu - 258
One pattern, two histories: although today known mostly from highly elegant English and Scottish tweeds and therefore thought of as very British, from a temporal and geographical perspective the history of the classic herringbone motif extends far beyond this – back even as far as the Early Middle Ages. Findings from Hedeby in northern Germany show that the Vikings were familiar with this geometric pattern and used it in various weaves. Now Leitner Leinen has reinterpreted herringbone to create an elegant yet strong pure linen as robust and timeless as the pattern’s history, making it ideal for all areas of the home, from the terrace to the living room or the kitchen.
