This charming print showcases the lavender of our beloved Provence in early July, when it is fully bloomed. The center of the table cloth is composed of four bouquets tied by a ribbon and arranged in a circle among some small scattered blue flowers. The bottom is ecru or yellow, it is left united until a very wide decorated border which constitutes the drop. There are the same bouquets around the table bringing all their lightness. On each side of this frieze, interlacing of soft green mimic a wrought iron banister colonized by a bindweed. It's a very airy and delicate motif for a romantic dining table cloth.
Why choose a round coated tablecloth? You should know that the coating makes the fabric waterproof by applying a thin layer of acrylic. This reduces the absorbency of cotton in case of stain, while retaining the interesting properties of cotton. The maintenance of a coated table cloth is no different from the maintenance of a cotton one without coating: iron it on the backside to allow the treatment to reactivate after washing and drying.

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.
