100% Irish Linen Hanky with an embroidered Claddagh ring and a lace edged corner. The Claddagh ring (fáinne Chladaigh) is a traditional Irish ring given as a token of friendship, love, as an engagement ring and as a wedding ring. The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located in the city of Galway. The elements of the symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown).
Linen Etamine is a coarser heavier fabric, which also features a light open mesh weave design. This creates a wonderful traditional rustic appearance. Not as formal as traditional damasks, ideal for the more casual diner. Matching Napkins, Runners and Placemats are also available in white and natural.
