Folding Cloth Napkins
Slide Napkin Fold
Folding cloth napkins is a great way to impress your dinner guests from the off. The slide napkin fold gives the napkin a very strong geometric look. This fold also can also benefit from starching the napkin before to give it extra shape.
Lay the napkin out in front of you. Unlike the majority of the cloth napkin folds this one starts with tags, labels and seams facing down.
Fold the napkin in half towards your self.
Fold the napkin in half again creating a square one quarter of its original size.
Rotate the napkin so it looks like a diamond with the opening corners at the top.
Take the top of the diamond and fold it back on its self.
Take the top layer and fold this back to towards the original position. Make sure that you leave about an inch over lap on the fold. This is that gives it its strength.
Flip the napkin over on to its back
Fold the napkin in half form left to right. If you’ve not got starch here is a good time to really attack it with a hot iron to make the fold stick.
Flip it up ninety degrees so it is free standing
