The Tradition print by Marat

Marat d'Avignon®, established in Provence since 1948, strives to bring alive the old and traditional Provencal patterns that were imported from India. Tradition is one of these. In the case of a rectangular cloth, it is proposed here in linear, that is to say in succession of large strips juxtaposed. They are themselves composed of different floral or more graphic friezes that stand out in contrasting color. They are interposed between bands covered with calissons. The four colors have a very heterogeneous rendering: the blue and white is very discreet, while the other colors are stronger. In all configurations, superior quality is characteristic of this Provencal fabric, perfect as a Thanksgiving tablecloth, in orange for instance.

Advantage of anti-stain

Tablecloths used daily are often prone to stains. It would be a shame to have to wash them after every accident. This is why we can use an acrylic treatment that makes the fabric waterproof by covering the printed side of the cotton. This allows you to erase a stain in one gesture, without laundry and especially without having to iron afterwards. It is a nice advantage for everyday use as well as special occasions.

Dimensions & coordinates

Before choosing dimensions, make sure that you have taken into account the drop-off: it should generally be between 8 and 14 inches from the table top. This calculation must be done for the length, because the width is imposed by the standard of manufacture. Here it is 61 inches. In France, the more popular dimension for length is 118 inches.
If you like the Tradition collection, the square tablecloth and the round tablecloth are also made of cotton or coated cotton, for a service table, for example.
Make sure to consult the accessories available in the same collection to complete your service: napkins, placemats and a breadbasket are essential for setting up a pretty table. For the kitchen, apron, gloves and pot holders can be useful.

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.

Lavage à 30¨C Machine wash at 30° C

Ne pas blanchir Do not bleach

Pas de nettoyage à sec No dry clean

Ne pas sécher en tambour Do not use tumble dryer

Repassage à fer froid (110¨C) Low temperature ironing

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).

round-tablecloth-size

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.

Happy with real Provencal patterns

I am happy to get such a nice tablecloth of real Provencal patterns. Regarding the color, being somewhat deeper than I imagined. However, this maybe result of coating.rn

Answer:

Indeed, this is a very traditional pattern of Provence. As to the color, it's very difficult to render a color depending on the screen visitors are using...
