The complicated process of weaving fine Swedish table linen was not without good results though. One story goes that an owner of a weavery Calle Redhe used to go to Norway to sell his fine Swedish table linen. In one particular summer trip, he met an older woman of about seventy years old. The woman came up to Calle and asked him if he was indeed Calle Redhe, to which he replied yes.
When thinking about buying your first set of table linens and you begin your search, it immediately becomes apparent that there are two approaches. The first is to simply go out and buy whatever is available. This may work in the short run, but beware; you may soon regret your purchase within a few washings. The hem may begin to pull out. The cloth may pull out of shape. The color may fade and change to a hue you can no longer tolerate. Unless you are going to use the linens for a picnic or two this is a waste of time and money.
Another important thing to know before choosing your table cloth is the measurements. Making sure that the table cloth fits the table perfectly is important, because a poorly sized table cloth will signal to your guests that you do not pay attention to detail. They might make the assumption that your bed and breakfast lacks this care in other aspects as well. Also, if your table cloth is too large it will become unwieldy and drag on the floor, which can be a tripping hazard. The way to determine what size you need is to measure the length of the table on each edge and then add 50 cm to each measurement. This is just the right amount to create the drape of the table cloth.
First, you have to find table linens and napkins that can withstand regular detergents, chlorine bleach, and hot-water laundering since they are always exposed to beverage and food stains. If you do not want your embroidered table linens to be exposed to stains, you can always opt for plain or white table linens. But you have to make sure that these have heavier weights. Second, there are table linens that are made from untreated cotton that require ironing. Instead of purchasing these items, you can always choose table linens that contain wrinkle-resistant treatments to reduce the need for ironing. Lastly, if you use the table linens for elegant and formal dining tables, you have to choose those with embroidery, lace, and cutwork. These will even make the dining table look more elegant and appealing.
Finally, if this is to be used frequently and children will be at the table, you will most likely want an easy care cloth. There are varieties in cloths that will make care easy. The first is the coated cloth. The cloth is either of printed design or woven and then a coating is applied so the cloth can simply be wiped clean. They will in some cases be very close to uncoated cloths in drape and feel and so they can be used freely for any occasion. The second is cloth that is woven with threads that are pretreated before weaving. These can also be wiped clean with a damp cloth and have the added attraction of feeling and draping exactly like untreated cotton. Both of these have been child tested and live up to their promise.
Then consider the design and color. For the most part that is a very personal choice. However, the more intricate the design, the more colors used in the design, the more carefully you need to consider the colors in the room and the design of the place settings and the flatware in order insure they blend well. Be certain to ask about the dyes used in the design to insure the color will last.
