There is no doubt that a well-ironed linen napkin dignifies a dinner table and gives a touch of class and distinction to the dining experience. But once upon a time, before napkins, princes and princesses used to wipe their hands after meals on their own clothing. This was a time before utensils were even around so imagine that huge mess! The Ancient Greeks used to wipe their hands clean with bread dough. For families that were not wealthy this was not even an option. The Ancient Romans used pieces of cloth they called Mappa as napkins. These napkins also doubled as “doggie bags” as they would wrap food to go in them too.
I get it, it’s 2017. Things have changed. Ideas are shared – especially good ones. I’ve even been known to borrow a good idea or two (but I always return them!). What to do though when an upstart steals the core design concept and exact content of your website? Even the placement of the words and ampersands. Really my man, the &’s?
Fortunately some things haven’t changed in this digital era, like lawsuits.
