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.
For formal events like weddings, tablecloths are available in numerous specialty fabrics like silk or organza. Silk and organza are more expensive tablecloth options, but they offer a more luxurious appearance and a number of formal style options including embroidery. Specialty fabrics require more delicate washing and care but most specialty tablecloths are only used on occasion. Consider renting specialty linens to avoid the cost of purchasing them in large quantities.
We specialize in creating custom size tablecloths to meet the unique needs of our customers. Whether you need a bespoke tablecloth (oval, rectangular, round, square) that is extra wide, extra long or an unusual shape; or if you would like custom printed table linens (wedding menu, crest, logo etc.), a monogram, hem-stitch or contrast stitching to personalize your linens, we have endless options to make unique custom made tablecloths, napkins and table runners at a range of price points.
