First, besides the obvious color pattern on the napkins, there is a subtle 1 1/2 inch pattern of fine needle holes around the edge of each napkin which creates an almost lacy effect which adds a nice touch. I have often been the recipient of Marimekko napkins from friends from Finland and have always been pleased with them. These, however, I purchased for myself to not only use on our dining table when we have guests but to also use as gift wrapping paper for five, small Finnish-themed gifts for a friend who is proud of her Finnish heritage. The napkins served the gift-wrapping task well.
