DO YOU CARRY COATED TABLECLOTHS/FABRICS OR OILCLOTH ? HOW DO YOU CARE FOR OR LAUNDER THE COATED FABRIC ?

YES!!! Our COATED fabric/tablecloths are made from 100% Cotton French fabric that has an Acrylic Coating. The Coated fabric is stain resistant, weather resistant and very durable. They are wonderful for outdoor dining, use with children & messy families, and for use on tables in high-traffic areas such as in the kitchen. They are much like the “old” style oilcloth, but a lighter weight and hang much nicer off the table.

The Fabric Coating is added directly to the fabric during the fabrication process in France and is called “Acrylitex or “Acryl-plus”.

The Coated Tablecloths are wipe-able with soapy water  and a sponge or cloth for everyday use. They can also be laundered occasionally in the washing machine and hung to dry. Iron on the WRONG-SIDE ONLY. Test your iron temperature first. Do not dry-clean.

These can be seen on our the "Tablecloths" page of our website, there are several Collections available in "Coated" (acrylic coated/oilcloth) tablecloths in a variety of sizes and colors, plus "fabric by the metre."
