Just before the oak trees turn, each tree every other year grows and releases acorns. They are gathered quickly and enjoyed by the deer. Though for humans they aren't a source of food, their lovely tannins and cute demeanors are a welcome sign of the beginning of fall.
We filled our baskets with acorns and brought them to a pot for dying. The leaves then were only showing the signs of the season, but the acorns were the first sign of autumn.
The color of these neutral napkins is a wonderful compliment to the collection of hand-dyed napkins from us. These will stand for years on any table; each one is marked in its own way with a sign of nature, perfectly imperfect and intended for daily use. Let them line dry to get the perfect wrinkle look for your table that will leave a sense of human and nature.
