The Kid Should See This

How are restaurant napkins made?

Watch more with these video collections:

Inside Rivolta Carmignani in Macherio, just north of Milan, the Rivolta family has been weaving and stitching fine hotel and restaurant linens for five generations. This bonus scene from the Anthony Bourdain-produced show Mind of a Chef goes inside their factory to capture how a bevy of precise machines, and the workers who run them, make restaurant napkins.

Next: The Big Cloth (An Clò-Mòr): Weaving Harris Tweed, Woven bark fiber, How to fold a Christmas Tree Napkin, and Chef Ludo Lefebvre visits the Bordier Butter Factory.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
