We have five members in our family, so using a paper napkin for every meal throughout the day uses a lot of napkins. I tried using cloth napkins in the past, but never liked the designs and wouldn’t commit to using them every day. My fear of napkin commitment changed when I found Picking Daisies.

Picking Daisies napkins

Picking Daisies napkins

Picking Daisies makes 100% cotton, home-made fabric napkins and bags. The company, located in San Luis Obispo, California, first sold  their items at craft fairs and farmer’s markets. As their wares became more popular, the three sisters who own the company established a storefront to showcase their talents as well as a website: Their napkins were featured on Sunset Magazine’s blog in October 2009 and local publications.

The fabric choices for their napkins are beautiful and just my style. I chose five different, but similar, fabrics, one pattern for each family member. We always use our own pattern every night, so I don’t have to worry about wiping my mouth with a napkin that was used by someone else.

They wash so well, I pull them out of the dryer, fold them, and they are ready to use. I never iron them, which works well, because I try really hard to never iron anything. This makes it very easy to go green.

Picking Daisies market bags

The talented ladies of Picking Daisies know green living doesn’t end at the dinner table. As plastic bag use has proven to be less desirable for more consumers, Picking Daisies also sews market bags. Now grocery shopping or getting your vegetables at your local farmer’s market can be fashionable and colorful with a Picking Daisies reusable, reversible bags. The bags wash as easily as the napkins, and are sturdy enough to hold all the fruits and vegetables you buy from your local farmers.
