Rustic design is all about casual textures that are not smooth on the surface and have a coarser feel and appearance. Gingham, Canvas and Hopsack tablecloths in shades of tan, gold, green, orange or brown provide a casual, earthy and homespun canvas upon which to build a table setting. Placemats and cloth napkins in vibrant solids made from hopsack, canvas, woven cotton or terrycloth continue the casual look and texture. Napkin Rings made from simple raffia ribbon, copper rings, leather or braided yarns, or rag strips make creative holders for cloth napkins. For a fragrant touch, tie a cinnamon stick to each napkin with a piece of raffa!
