Choose the right colour. If there is a more important factor in interior design than obtaining the right colour, we have yet to discover what it is. Needless to say, this problem is just as relevant in the area of table linens. It is important to ensure that whichever covers you choose to buy fit in well with the colours of the room you have intended them for. Whether you have got a naturalistic colour scheme based around subtle blues, greens and greys or are more inclined towards brighter reds and oranges, you can be sure that taking the time to obtain the right coloured linens will be a decision that you will not regret.
Prior to weaving and spinning, the women would color the flax. Bleaching the fine Swedish table linens was difficult, as many of the dyes were not colorfast. Some of the natural dyes that were utilized were from natural findings leaves, lichens, moss, and bark. In the rare occasions when other colors were requested, they could buy colorings--logwood, gambier, indigo, and Farnock (from a tree).
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.
