Napkins & Tablecovers

Established in 1892, we are the UK market leader manufacturer of paper napkins and tablecovers, specialists in providing the full quality and colour spectrum required by the caterer, plus bespoke print. 

All of our napkins are made from FSC® certified paper, with our 1 and 2 ply white options made from 100% recycled paper. We are the only UK company to offer this. 

We make 1 ply, 2 ply, 3 ply napkins and our linen replacement Swansoft® Airlaid which are our high quality linen feel napkins. Swansoft is soft and strong, a luxury and hygienic low cost alternative to linen. Our Swansoft napkins also enhance any table setting when paired with our range of Airlaid slipcovers, tablecovers and banqueting rolls. They offer excellent feel and drape and are perfect for all uses from breakfasts to conferences, outside catering and fine dining. All Swansoft is made from FSC® certified paper, in addition Swansoft white is also compostable. 

We stock a wide variety of colours and sizes, and make bespoke printed designs to enhance your own brand. Our UK design team can quickly bring your design to life and of course, as all our napkins are UK made, the lead time from order to delivery is short and we will keep in touch with you along the way. 

Dispenser napkins are one of the largest parts of our business as they help cut down usage, whilst also hygienically delivering napkins to your customers. 

We have a variety of dispenser napkin sizes, formats and dispensers. For more detailed information please see the separate Dispenser section. 

As a response to the demand for less handling of products we have introduced napkins with a neat pocket for cutlery. Made from the same material as our luxury Swansoft napkins these are available in a wide variety of colours – perfect for safe clean and fast table setting.


We manufacture tablecovers in three qualities:


Swansilk is our wipe clean tablecoverings assortment. With its’ practical wipe clean surface on a paper backing for better drape, products made from Swansilk both look good, are reusable several times and protect the table underneath.


We also offer paper tablecovers and banqueting rolls, as the lowest cost alternative. Our hard wearing paper is available in white and red and is perfect for all outside catering or party occasions.


Swansoft is our luxury linen replacement option. Made from thick airlaid tissue, it has a wonderful linen feel and look and also complements our Swansoft napkins. 

Swansoft is a perfect low cost option for conference and banqueting facilities, combining luxury feel, hygienic use and low cost whilst avoiding expensive and cumbersome linen contracts or laundry.

Both Swansilk and Swansoft are available in a variety of colours as Slipcovers 90cm x 90cm, Tablecovers 120 x 120cm and as Banqueting rolls.

Dispenser napkins

Dispenser napkins offer a hygienic, cost effective and environmentally friendly way of serving napkins to customers. Dispensed one at a time, there is less wastage and less handling of the product to ensure lowest cost in use. 

Swan Mill’s dispenser napkins can also be easily handed out one by one from behind the counter without the need for a dispenser to ensure absolute control and best use of space and time. 

Napkin Dispensers in customer areas mean less napkin usage so as well as saving you money they are also good for the environment. 

We have a number of sizes available for different dispensing solutions and supply plain, print, kraft and 100% recycled options to satisfy all requirements of size and scale.
