Nautical decor can be subtly integrated into your home in the summer months. Set the table with lobster napkins for enjoying the catch of the day, or toss a pillow on a cozy chair to perk up a living room in a summer rental. Ortolan Organic , started by New York-based sisters Bethany and Jenna Mallett, share their graphic, realistic take on the natural world through eco-conscious pillows, napkins and tea towels, made of hemp organic cotton canvas. With a retro sensibility and beautiful details, their clean designs are perfect for summer getaways and gifts, or going somewhere breezy in your mind.

I love the weight of printed cotton canvas.  The Lobster Pillow shows the shell in great detail.

A simple Anchor is such a graphic iconic image.

OK, so sailors don't really say this,  but it's cute nonetheless.

Much nicer than Fudgy The Whale.

The reverse on white takes on a different look.

Have some of these on hand after a messy meal of clams and steamers.

Hello easy-to-give gifts.

The Lobster Tea Towel would add a striking touch of red hanging in a galley kitchen.

Crabs can be friendly, just look at this guy.

He is making his way from the corner of the napkin.

If you go to Nantucket, bring him along.
