Since the nineteenth century, the Jacquard weaving technique allows very complex combinations of drawings within the fabric. Generally, cotton is used for table linen, and a cotton and polyester blend for decoration. In matter of tableware, the cotton is coated with Teflon to obtain a better seal. Stains do not catch on the fabric. This treatment generates no maintenance constraints since the tablecloth remains machine washable.
Whatever the material, the threads are crossed so that the pattern appears slightly raised, and identically on the back but in negative. We can thus highlight the drawings made with a single color, or mix the colors. The rendering of the decor is all in texture, really different from a piece of printed cotton.
As to this square table cloth: the Renaissance motif plays on the highlighted arabesques. On the bottom of the tabletop, large tonal-tone diamonds of the main color contain encrusted scrolls. On the drop, large bands decorated in eighteenth century style with different colors meet at the corners. They are highlighted by two contrasting edges on each side, which make up a square corner. Colors and patterns overlap harmoniously. Seeing this square tablecloth, we understand the interest of Jacquard woven.
