Many people may not think much about tablecloths until they need them. Events such as weddings, parties and family dinners are the perfect opportunity to dress up the table of the home. Tablecloths add spice and variety not just to the table, but to the atmosphere and the occasion it’s being used for. Although tablecloths are mainly used to protect tables from wear and tear, they are also used to provide style and variety to not only the table but the room as well.
For every day use in an eat-in kitchen or informal dining room, cotton tablecloths are an excellent option. Cotton is easy to produce and process, which keeps the price low on most cotton options. Most cotton tablecloths are machine washable, though some tablecloths with multicolored patterns may show some color bleeding after washing. Cotton tablecloths can also be spot cleaned with a damp rag or sponge. In terms of durability, few fabrics compare to long-lasting cotton. Cotton tablecloths are available in a wide range of colors, patterns and sizes which also contribute to their popularity. Though cotton tablecloths can be used outdoors, they can mold or deteriorate after long periods of exposure to extreme weather or moisture.
Tablecloths are manufactured from different kinds of materials, including cotton, vinyl, linen and silk. The type of material used will mostly be determined by the occasion the tablecloth will be used for. Some tablecloths work best for certain events and in certain locations. However, each type of tablecloth has its advantages and disadvantages.
Main use light color or pure white table cloth, cotton cloth is given priority to, because cotton has strong water absorption and softness, light and white can foil the elegant environment, for the customer to clean hygiene sweet and comfortable feeling. Most of the stains on hotel tablecloths are food, wine, vegetable juice and condiments. Specific subdivisions may include cream, fish, gravy, vegetable juice, soft drinks, tea, coffee, red wine, white wine, soy sauce, vinegar, and other condiments and seasonings, and possibly even vomit. Since the source of the stain is more complex, the distribution of the stain is crisscrobed, the time of the stain is longer and so on, it is difficult for the hotel tablecloth to be stained and washed. However, as long as we make rational analysis of all the sources of stains, it is not difficult to find a solution to the washing. The stains on the tablecloth are divided by nature, which may consist of tannic acid, protein, vegetable oil, wine, vinegar, salt, sugar and pigment.
If you want to top off your tablescapes with even more elegant fabric, table runners and table overlays are icing on the cake. A table runner is a long table linen that can be used on top of a tablecloth, or alone on a bare table for a clean and classic look. Table overlays offer an extra layer to your tablescape which is great for broadening your event color palette or adding depth with an interesting pattern like polka dot, animal print, or even a textured fabric like burlap.
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.
