Our favourite lifestyle store in Palma!
If you think paper napkins are nothing but a functional yet uninspiring piece of the ‘table setting puzzle’, think again. In fact, it’s time to give those rectangular pieces of paper a proverbial pat on the back. Here’s why:
Discarded napkins deserve praise as they’ve led to arrests in a number of cold cases, through contemporary DNA technology. Aside from helping detectives solve high-profile murder cases, it is a well-known fact that some of the biggest ideas in art and showbiz begun as casual sketches on a cocktail napkin. It was during a business lunch in 1994 that four Pixar bigwigs doodled the ideas for A Bug’s Life, Monsters, Inc, Finding Nemo and WALL-E. Pedro Gabriel, an internationally acclaimed Brazilian poet, started writing poems on napkins when he ran out of paper. He’s now, of course, two books and millions of online followers later.
Although Antonia Kozakova, a record-breaker who boasts an incredible collection of 80,000 unique napkins, might have taken a love of napkins a bit far, there’s certainly a lot to be said for stocking up on these handy packs of colourful paper. They are easy to store, keep forever and are sure to be utilised, whether for hunting down bad guys, recording your ideas for Hollywood’s next hit or, indeed, wiping your hands and mouth after lunch.
Rialto Living boast a wide-ranging selection of napkins, featuring a myriad of pretty patterns, not to mention every shade on the colour wheel. What’s more, they also sell the genius napkins made by MYdrap, the only cotton and linen tear-off napkins on a roll. Rialto Living stock these stylish alternatives to paper napkins in different tones and in three handy sizes. What’s more, they are machine-washable, so re-usable and eco-friendly to boot. And what’s not to love about that?
Rialto Living, conveniently located on Calle Sant Feliu 3, is just a stone’s throw away from Palma’s STP and sells a wide selection of eye-catching super yacht must-haves. Have a snoop around and see for yourself. And if you make a purchase don’t forget to flash your STP (or other) entry card so you can relax in their leafy, oasis-like café and sip on a complimentary ‘cafe con leche’ before you head back to the boat.
