Linen itself has been featured in history since Prehistoric times. Egyptian culture used linen as a basic cloth as well as for costume. Archaeologists have found samples of linen, dating back to 4200 BC. Linen that is now used in fine Swedish table linen was processed in much the same way, back in 642 AD. Unfortunately, few pieces have survived from that time. By the 1500 , a damask linen was imported by Holland and Flanders. This linen was used for table cloths by the wealthy. This tradition was replicated in the seventeenth century in Sweden. Fine Swedish table linens were owned by wealthy Swedish families they were ornate and decorative. And it was not until the 1800 that table linen was used as an everyday table cloth. From the seventeenth century, Halsingland, Sweden began to produce both flax and linen. It was in 1730 that a man by the name of Stephen Bennet set up a linen factory of sorts with about eighty looms. The quality of the damask created was high, but the factory stopped producing fine Swedish table linen in 1845 when it closed down.
Table linens play a major role when it comes to make the best ambiance for events like wedding. Linens transform the look of tables and look fabulous for any special occasion. The chairs and tables, properly garlanded with gorgeous table linens look just awesome. Table linen includes everything from the tablecloths to napkins. Buying linens can be somewhat expensive, instead looking for a reliable company that rent table linens can be an ideal option. It is true that rentals are heard to find, but in recent times there are some companies offering linens on rent.
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.
