When evaluating a set of linens one of the most important considerations is the strength of the construction of the cloth. Hems should be firm and evenly stitched. Cloth which simply has a stitching around the edge will soon pull out and the cloth will fray. The weave of the cloth should be even with little or no variation in the weave. With jacquard weave or damask, the design should stand out a bit but not so much as to be likely to catch and pull.
It is good to keep away from the cloths that have just stitching to bind the edges; such cloths will not last after several washings. Those stitching will eventually pull away from the fabric thus making the fabric to fray. Besides, due to the stitches, the fabric will pull out after a few washings making the table linen to lose its shape. One good thing about quality French linens is that, they are normally made of the cotton material which makes them easier when it comes to handling them. Any stain whether the grease stain or fruit stain will easily be removed. In addition, the French table linens usually have long lasting colors as well as very pleasant and interesting designs. Some colors are printed while others are woven; these colors do not fade over a long period of time. Normally, the design and the colours on the French tablecloths are balanced to ensure that they easily blend with any decor.
Tablecloths were a standard in wealthy households during the Medieval and Renaissance periods. People used the edges of the tablecloth to wipe their face and hands, with smaller napkins becoming stylish because they were easier to handle. The use of table linens spread to the working class during the 15th century and they often used plain white or off white linen fabric to cover the tables in their homes.
