This item includes three types of variations: the allover print (stripe version is available HERE), the treatment (coated or not), and the color (4 different). Before adding this product to the cart, you must indicate your options, which is not necessarily simple so this collection is beautiful. Here are some tips to help you.
The fabric treatment will do you the greatest service daily. Indeed, the coating makes it possible to neutralize the absorbency of cotton which is inconvenient in table use, and to retain only its other advantages. In case of unfortunate gesture, you can then wipe the stain out with a sponge which will avoid a laundry for a punctual fouling. For a tablecloth that is used daily, this is ideal.
This treatment is just as convenient for a less common use of your tablecloth. If you're setting up a party table, you'll want a freshly washed and ironed tablecloth. This is quite possible on a coated cotton cloth: it will have to be ironed on the back of the print to reactivate the waterproofing properties. Thus, your tablecloth will be protected from "accidents" that occur necessarily during a meal.
Stripe or allover?
The Avignon allover fabric is more suitable for everyday use, as it traces these calissons on a background of color, a very typical print of the region. A long time ago, these tiny drawings were indeed intended to break the monotony of plain cotton in clothing or decoration. They are perfect for a nicely dressed kitchen table, or a terrace table, and why not for a stylish picnic?
As for the stripe version, it is more decorated with many parallel friezes alternated with strips of calissons. We recommend this pattern for a square tablecloth more festive than its cousin: Christmas tablecloth in red or elegant dining table cloth in gray taupe. The color can also be chosen according to your interior.
One more word: matching napkins are made in Avignon allover fabric and are available in all colors. Up to you now!

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.
