Linen-feel napkins or Airlaid Napkins are commonly made of nonwoven fabrics for a soft, cloth texture with a textile-like drape. They are made of air-laid paper, and are non-linting with no dust and no static. Air-laid paper is cellulose-based products with a binder infused in them for stability and softness.
Air-laid paper offers an environmentally-friendly product, great for eco-conscious operators. It's made by converting soft, random-laid fibers made from wood pulp or synthetic fibers into a sturdy and absorbent web, using air instead of water to transfer the fibers. Synthetic resin bonding agents are then applied to the pulp web with a spray process. The air space created in manufacturing the web accounts for its light weight in comparison to its bulk.
Compared with normal wet-laid paper, air-laid paper is much softer, fluffier, and more porous. It can be dyed, printed, embossed, coated, and made solvent resistant, and it is very absorbent.
