- The best way to store your coated tablecloth is to roll it up. Spills will wipe easily from your coated tablecloth – clean immediately with a sponge and clean warm water. Do not use any abrasive cleaning fluids, cloths or detergents. We strongly recommend the use of trivets and placemats as excessive heat can damage the coating and spoil the look of the fabric. While our coated fabrics are fade resistant, if left in very strong sunlight for extended periods some natural fading will occur. To freshen up your coated tablecloth it can be occasionally machine washed at 30°C. Do not use fabric softener. Hang your tablecloth to dry in the shade with as few folds as possible. When the cloth is completely dry, iron on a cool setting on the reverse side to reactivate the coating. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean.
"Bastide Allover" Square COATED Cotton Tablecloth
Bastides are fortified towns built in medieval France during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.
When bastides were founded most had no city walls or fortifications. This was because it was a peaceful time in history, and walls were prohibited by the Treaty of Paris (1229). Fortifications were added later - paid for either through a special tax, or carried out through a law that required the people of the city to help build the walls.
