As societies evolved, so did the art of napkin treatment, with various techniques and styles emerging around the world.

For example, in Japan, the art of origami is often incorporated into napkin folding, creating intricate and delicate designs. In European countries like France and Italy, elaborately folded napkins are commonly used in fine dining establishments to enhance the overall dining experience.
