With its clever rolled textiles, a family business in Spain has given traditional table linens a modern makeover by weaving the perfect blend of utility, style, and sustainability.
Imagine the convenience of paper towels and the elegance of crisp cotton linens. Put the two together, and you’ve got MYdrap. These cloth serviettes are wrapped around a roll and perforated so that you can tear off individual cocktail napkins, luncheon napkins, dinner napkins, or placemats as needed. The MYdrap fabric is made from all natural fibers (100% cotton) that are biodegradable and recyclable. But before you think about tossing your used MYdrap linens, think again. All of these products can be washed and used over and over again.
The company behind MYdrap was founded in Barcelona in 1925 by textile workers Antonio and Maria Guasch. When the family business created seamless cotton cloths on a roll for the hospitality market in the 1990s, the invention took the European textile industry by storm and helped Hostel Drap stay ahead of increasing competition from Asia. Now, the Guasch great-grandchildren — Jacinto and Maria Guasch pictured here with Eva Ramirez — have adapted the innovative rolled linens for home entertaining.
When paper napkins just won’t cut it, but you’re not quite ready to break out your fanciest need-to-be-ironed linens either, MYdrap is the perfect solution.
