It is a very traditional print of the region and is one of the most beautiful motifs created by the provencal house Marat d'Avignon. The colors are bright and brilliant thanks to a superior cotton quality. The motifs almost occupy the entire tablecloth. The part that covers the round table is dotted with “calissons” on a colored background. Their number is growing up to the center. This one is marked by a bouquet of flowers in crown underlined by a border. The drop is decorated with two friezes, the second being much wider than the first. Its drawing is more complex too. The outer edge is left without pattern on a small width and ends with a finishing strip.
Cotton or cotton coated ?
Are you still hesitating between cotton and coated cotton? Here are some details below to help you. Coating is a treatment applied to the fabric to make it more waterproof and prevent stains from becoming embedded in the fibers. One side of the textile is coated with a thin layer of acrylic. This does not preclude machine washing which is done like a delicate wash of colors, with normal rinsing and medium spin. You must iron the cotton piece on the wrong side (negative side of the print) to reactivate the properties of the treatment. Your coated tablecloth will be ready for use again, and possibly soiled. If you quickly sponge the stain, it will not mark the fabric. It works as if you had a waterproof tablecloth.
There is no care precaution specific to coated fabric compared to cotton. Uncoated cotton is necessarily more absorbent because it is not protected by acrylic, but it is more natural to the touch and it is also more economical to buy. We hope you are now able to make your decision.
