The Bishops Hat napkin fold is a very classic fold used in many restaurants. This fold looks very much like the hat a bishop would wear at church (hence the name) and has just as much appeal whether it is placed lying down or standing up on your place settings. This napkin fold works well with most of our cotton and linen dinner napkins.

However, this napkin fold is moderately challenging, as you will need to flip and fold the bottom of more than one corner of the napkin in ways that might not seem right. This is, of course, why we have this napkin folding tutorial for you! For best napkin 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
