The Bishops Hat napkin fold is a very classic fold used in many restaurants. This fold looks great lying down or standing up on the place setting and works well with most of our cotton and linen dinner napkins. For best folding results, it may help to first iron the napkins thoroughly with starch to ensure a more rigid napkin.

Suggested napkins for this folding style:
White Hemstitched Linen Dinner Napkins
Ecru Hemstitched Linen Dinner Napkins
