Black napkins offered

We had dinner at an upscale but not ultrafancy place Saturday night and we were asked if we wanted black napkins??? Hesitated in answering- not sure if it was some voodoo thing. The waiter said- oh so you don't get lint on your dark clothing! This was a new experience for us- has anyone out there been offered a black napkin???
