A utensil that has a colorful history and one that dates back many years to age old times. It has been recorded that the first appearance of a utensil used like a napkin was bread dough which was formed into little pieces that were used to blot the face and hands during and after eating. As the custom evolved, baked bread made was then used as a Napkin to blot away excess food and beverage as it was consumed. Eventually, cloth and paper were introduced as utensils that became Napkins and today, continue to be used for this purpose. Both paper and cloth Napkins are made in a wide variety of different patterns, shapes, textures, and sizes. Napkins are produced to match tablecloths, seasonal settings, geographic settings, and purposes, such as picnics, boating, and celebrations. Paper Napkins are most often associated with everyday and casual use while cloth Napkins are traditionally used for more formal events such as celebrations and dinners.
