Perfect for families with young kids, this 100 percent linen tablecloth is so affordable that you won’t feel too guilty if it gets doused in spaghetti sauce or grape juice. (Plus, it’s machine washable and easy to clean.) Still, it’s elegant and suitable for an occasion as formal as a holiday dinner or a business dinner. If you’re looking for a pure white tablecloth, this is a great choice—it’s a stark and bright white with no cream undertones.
Tablecloth design, like any other fashion art form, reflected existing tastes and styles of the period. We can use the records of these fashions and moods to generally determine dates. Although in some cases the tablecloths can be assigned to a general decade, as I have done in my book, or even to a specific group of years, the lack of manufacturing records or other cataloguing of these delightful keepsakes makes assigning any one date extremely difficult. For my book, I researched the history of the dyes, copyright & trademark records and poured over vintage catalogs to come up the a “quick reference summary” to help you date your tablecloths.
If you live in a house with kids which is going to guarantee accidents, you’ll want to consider the wipeable tablecloth, as it will save you time and money in the long run. If you are in an environment these accidents are less frequent, then the cost advantage of the cotton tablecloth will be more attractive to you.
