At 31 Chapel Lane, online purveyors of Irish linen and tweed, shopkeepers Damien Hanningan and Joy Fu like to encourage “the laying of Sunday linen on the midweek table.” We’re with them: in addition to being better for the environment, cloth elevates every meal. Based in Cavan, Ireland, 31 Chapel Lane sources its materials from Irish Linen Guild–approved mills; its napkins are 100 percent organic Irish linen.
