Of all of our envelope style napkin folds, the simple pocket is by far the easiest and fastest to fold. The simple pocket is perfect for hosting a casual lunch or dinner for family or friends and is both functional and classic. This fold works well with many of our cotton and linen dinner napkins. For best folding results, we suggest first ironing 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
