A very traditional print
This is one of the patterns deeply rooted in tradition, perpetuated by Maison Marat d'Avignon®, a textile company established in Provence since 1948.
The quality of the fabric as well as the very neat finishing of the confection are characteristic. In rectangular format, the table top is covered with calissons contrasting against a background of color. The decor is denser on the drop, alternating strips of paisley patterns, calissons and floral frieze in two tones. The two colors are very different, each has its own identity although belonging to the same collection.
In fact, color is a matter of taste, but the beauty of these rectangular Provencal tablecloths is incomparable.
As dining room table cloths, all shapes are available. In round or oval, the pattern is placed and the pattern can be framed in some dimensions in linear (square, rectangular).
Bastide collection contains also a wide choice in art de la table and also offers some kitchen items. We recommend the squared rectangular placemats to complement your table service perfectly.
Anti strain treatment
In order to make your tablecloth waterproof, it is possible to choose the coating option which adds a thin layer of acrylic on the printed side. This common textile technique is very practical, whether for everyday use or for special occasions. In case of stain, just use a sponge to remove it!
No need for routine laundry, your tablecloth stays clean longer, and you also save the chore of ironing. The coating is invisible and undetectable, and does not prevent machine washing. Ironing is done on the underside of the print at medium temperature (150°C). This ennobling is ideal for beautiful tablecloths like Bastide.

All our household linen is made with care in the South East of France with quality textile materials. In order to preserve all the qualities of your article, we recommend you to follow our maintenance advices. This will help you enjoy the features and properties of your house linen longer.
Some tips : to wash your laundry, we recommend Marseille soap, a natural and really effective product that the washerwomen (lavandieres) of Provence used formerly. In addition to being environmentally friendly and harmless to the skin and the environment, it cleans and removes stains perfectly without damaging fabric. You can also use white vinegar as a softener: it's natural too. Do not hesitate and follow the example of Provencal housewives, back to fundamentals: it's good for you, for your home, and for the planet!
For TEFLON treated or coated fabrics: we recommend to iron on the reverse side of the fabric to reactivate the properties of anti-stain treatment.

Choose your tablecloth according to your table (shape and dimensions), how you use it (indoor or in the garden) and ... your preferences!
Which dimensions ?
Whatever the shape of your table, you may start by measuring length and width or diameter.
Once the dimensions known, make sure to add 15 to 35 cm (about 6 to 14 in) on each side for the fallout (30 to 70 cm in total, or 12 to 28 in).
If you do not know the dimensions of the table (for a gift for example), you may count in number of guests: therefore, allow a minimum of 60 to 70 cm (23.6 to 27.6 in) between each guest and apply this simple rule:
- For a rectangular table, the length of the tablecloth should be 150 cm up to 4 persons + 50 cm each time you add 2 more guests (for 10 guests, the length of the tablecloth should be 150 + 3 x 50 = 300 cm)
- For a round table, the diameter of the tablecloth should be 150 cm up to 4 persons + 30-40 cm each time you add 2 more guests (for 8 guests, the diameter of the tablecloth should be 150 + 2 x 40 = 230 cm)
Is coating useful?
The coating facilitates daily use and spares machine washes by allowing to wipe stains off with a sponge; untreated tablecloths offer a softer touch; Teflon-treated tablecloths offer 2 advantages ... Your choice will depend essentially on 3 criteria:
- Outdoor use: If your tablecloth is mainly used outdoor, we recommend that you choose coated cotton;
- Frequency of use: for daily use, prefer the coating to simplify maintenance. Conversely, for occasional use (party, reception, etc.), we recommend a tablecloth without coating for printed cotton or treated with Teflon for jacquard woven cotton.
- Your personal feelings: If you want to find the touch of 100% cotton, go for untreated or Teflon treated tablecloths.
Printed cotton or jacquard woven: a matter of texture
Printed cotton tablecloths and 100% cotton jacquard woven tablecloths are mainly dedicated to the 'art de la table'. They can have an acrylic or Teflon coating to prevent stain permeation. Printed cotton is lighter, for everyday or outdoor use. Jacquard cotton tablecloths are generally more refined, with very elaborate patterns and a texture that makes the drop off more neat. They are appreciated for setting a holiday table.
Jacquard woven cotton and polyester blend tablecloths are more designed for decoration, because this combination of materials and their weaving method allows a thickness close to the upholstery fabric.
In both cases, maintenance remains simple, and machine washing is possible at 30-40 °C, with a recommendation for washing at a 'delicate linen' program for the decorative jacquard woven fabric (because of the threads in relief). We recommend ironing all your tablecloths inside out, to prevent the heat from altering the beautiful colors of Provence. This is strongly recommended for anti stains treated tablecloths and it will reactivate the coating protection.

Can the non-coated tablecloths go in the dryer?
Thanks in advance!
Usually we do not recommend using the dryer for table linen (it wears out faster).
However, you can use the dryer occasionally for tablecloths printed in 100% cotton only (neither Jacquard tablecloths nor coated tablecloths).
