A summer and bright pattern

This pretty provencal fabric is worth the detour, with its big and small yellow cicadas sometimes drawn precisely, sometimes simple. They seem to play hide-and-seek in olive branches while the blue background of the tablecloth evokes the sky of Provence. Some touches of lemon yellow give light to the patterns. In the center, a crown of branches shelters three cicadas practically in real size posed in staggered. Around this crown, a yellow band decorated with green scrolls forms a border. Then the calissons take over until a second yellow frieze that marks the beginning of the drop. There, we find our life-size cicadas that run after all around the table in the olive blossoms. Finally, a final frieze, identical to the first ones, borders the perimeter, then reveals the deep blue background. A yellow stripe brings a delicate finish to this outdoor tablecloth with singing accents.

Quality and easy maintenance

This round anti-stain tablecloth has been dexterously developed by an old textile house, which guarantees a quality of French manufacture, and what is more, Provençal. Historically, housewives of Provence pay particular attention to the preparation and maintenance of linen. That tradition is passed on from mother to daughter, and continues through generations. For example, just visit small Provencal villages to realize that they all have their lavoir (wash house). This is where the lavandieres (washerwomen) gathered to wash the laundry with Marseille soap.

Today, Provencal cloths adapt to modernity, we use anti-stain acrylic treatment for waterproof tablecloths to avoid washing. The time of wash-houses is over. With a quick wipe, you will be able to remove the traces of an awkward gesture. If necessary, you can also perfect the cleaning of your tablecloth to the machine. Whether cotton or coated, we recommend a moderately warm ironing on the back of the print. Nothing easier. Thus, you will preserve all the qualities of your table decoration: the brilliance of the colors of Provence and the flawless drop.

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

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.
