Everyone will have guests in their home. Now imagine your tablecloth getting torn up only because your kid was trying to stand up holding it, maybe because it had become weak after 2-3 washes.

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.
In any case, think about your preferences when you’re deciding between tablecloths as well as the style and the elegance that you want to transmit. For the finishing touch try to match the colors to your dishware.

Tablecloths are the need of every house. But you will not find many who really care about the durability of the tablecloth before buying. If the tablecloth has a good design and a nice look, then it is bought without even thinking of its quality. I will tell you why getting a durable tablecloth is important.
