  1. A question from a non Portugues that does not understand this custom. Why do men have to have special embroidered napkins? Are these for a special occassions? Don’t woman use napkins and don’t they deserve them embroidered too?


  2. Velia! You make me laugh a lot! You are right Women deserve embroidered napkin bags as well.
    Those were for a special event only attended by men and was for fun. Inside each bag was a napkin with a buttonhole to hang the napkin to the shirt :-)


  3. Seria bom que as etiquetas fossem claras. Bom fim de semana.


  4. Merí, I am glad I made you laught instead of being offended. You did a magnificent job preparing so many bags and napkins and doily. The flower embroidery is very pretty.
