Bread basket Bastide printed fabric
A pur traditional motif
These printed cotton tablecloths of incomparable strength and softness is a pure product of Provencal folklore. They are made by Marat d'Avignon®, famous textile house since 1948. The table top is simply covered with calissons. The drop of the tablecloth is decorated with a large final frieze in paisley style. The edge of the marine color is different: it is lined with a band of calissons, then another floral frieze that goes back to the top. All with a mix of navy blue and white.
This article is the framed version of the square Bastide tablecloth. It also exists in allover double border, in which only two sides are decorated instead of four.
Table & kitchen linen
If you like it, Bastide comes in many tableware and kitchen linens. It combines the advantages of printed cotton, lighter than Jacquard woven, with the beauty of a high quality fabric. It can therefore meet the needs of both table service and decoration.
You will find in our catalog the printed Bastide in all categories: square tablecloths with striped or framed pattern, rectangular tablecloths in several dimensions, mats (in rectangular or octagonal version) and table runners, placemats of different shapes and sizes. Anti-stain treatment is usually provided when the configuration allows it. There are also coasters and of course, the essential accessories to this square tablecloth are the matching towels.
Our advices to enjoy!

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.
