100% Cotton Damask
Soak up spills as quickly as possible. Gently massage a small amount of liquid laundry detergent into any stains and wash immediately in cold water. A tablespoon of oxygen bleach (such as Napisan) can be added to the washing - but do not use household bleach as this can damage the fabric and cause yellowing.
We recommend line drying, however, if you use a clothes dryer, remove the tablecloth from the dryer when "just dry" to avoid excessive wrinkling. As this tablecloth is made from 100% Cotton some natural shrinkage will occur (up to 10%). We recommend steam pressing your tablecloth to relax and rehydrate the fibres.
Store in a dry place. Can be drycleaned.
"Chrysanthemum" Damask Tablecloth
Traditionally, “damask” refers to heavy silk, linen or cotton fabrics with a pattern woven into it, used for table linen and upholstery. Modern damasks are woven on computerised jacquard looms and damask fabrics are produced in single-colour weaves using silk, linen, cotton and synthetic threads (such as rayon and polyester) and feature patterns of flowers, fruit, and geometrical designs. The long floats of warp and weft threads cause soft highlights on the fabric which reflect light differently according to the position of the observer.
Note: As this damask fabric is 100% cotton, some natural shrinkage will occur (up to 10%). Please refer to the care instructions.
