One of my treats when friends and family join us for lunch or dinner, is setting the table. Friends kindly offer, but this is the highlight of my getting ready... covering the table with a beautiful linen tablecloth....!
A good tablecloth is an investment, often something that is handed down through the generations, particularly if it is one with a known provenance. I print these unique tablecloths in Timsbury, Somerset. They make beautiful gifts with designs of scenes, foliage, trees or birds found locally. Linen is expensive... however, it is a long lasting and enduring fabric, becoming more beautiful with age and use.
Many of my tablecloths are printed as commissions; customers will choose the colours of the linen and ink, the design and size. A set of matching napkins is often chosen too, making the table perfect for a celebratory gathering or just for everyday getting together with family. The printed linen washes well at 30 degrees, becoming soft, and the more it is used, the more beautifully it ages.
