The woman was delighted to find Calle as she herself had bought a fine Swedish table linen from Calle is father in 1948 just after she was married. Now, recently widowed after fifty-seven years and returned to Norway to live she was delighted to learn she could finally buy some napkins woven from the same loom as the tablecloth. She had her tablecloth with her and purchased matching napkins. Fine Swedish table linen has a long history behind it, but it is the story of the owners and their families are what enrich their legacy. And with the long-standing tradition of linen making and weaving, you too can probably find something to match your great-grandmother linens.
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.
If you have invested in table linens, you want to be careful how you clean, care for, and store them. Nice table linens can last generations if treated correctly. How you treat your linens will depend on what type of material they are. Some are actual linen made of a natural fiber, while others are blended with polyester for easier care. If your linens have a tag that instructs you on how to care for them, you are in luck. If they do not, then you are better off safe than sorry. Treat them as if they are real linen if you are not sure.
