The design of the cloth is important for creating a particular look. You can choose a woven, printed, patterned, or embroidered designs. For formal occasions, you should choose ivory or white color. You can choose printed and patterned designs for informal settings. Damask and jacquard are used for patterns which are woven. They are perfect for creating an elegant and stylish look. It also refers to heavy cloth, but the patterns of damask are woven into fabrics of different weight. These are some of the important considerations which will help in choosing the right table linen for any table setting and any occasion.
For informal outdoor dining or picnics, vinyl tablecloths offer weather resistance and easy clean up. Vinyl resists damage from stains, light, water or air exposure. Vinyl tablecloths are commonly associated with informal and outdoor dining, so they may not be ideal for formal weddings or events. Vinyl tablecloths are available in several colors and patterns to match any color scheme or theme. Vinyl is also one of the cheapest fabric options for tablecloths.
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.
