The diamond arrow is one of the faster folds to make and does not require a rigid napkin. If you are in a crunch for time or are using old soft napkins, the diamond arrow fold is the one you want. This fold works well with several of our cotton and linen dinner napkins.

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