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.
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.
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.
