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.
