Table linens are usually made of cotton or linen fabric. Cotton has long fibers that make smooth and durable cloth. Linen also has long fibers that are fine and strong. Both fabrics are absorbent, resist stains and are machine washable. Other table linens may be made of silk, organza, polyester mixes or satin. Table linens come in many colors or prints and provide variety with different types of weaves. Damask is a popular weave that creates a simple pattern within the fabric.
Making linens, including table linens, is considered an art that dates back to early Egyptian times. A table linen is a fabric woven with fibers from the flax plant. Turning flax into fabric takes great care and involves a long and painstaking process in order to achieve good results. Nowadays, there are many options available to cater to various tastes of consumers. So, if you are thinking of purchasing table linens, there are some things that you have to remember.
If budget permits, replacing the basic white tablecloths for your reception will gain you the maximum impact. Think how much more elegant champagne colored tablecloths in an opulent brocade would look than plain white. Or how much more cheerful yellow linens would be. Do not overlook the possibility of tablecloths with an appealing texture, like a rich dupioni. The attention to detail you give your table linens will have a huge effect on the overall style of your wedding reception.
Cotton and linen wrinkles when washed and makes it necessary for table linens to be starched and ironed. Renting linens from linen services eliminate all the trouble of cleaning, ironing and storage. Most services have a multitude of service linens in a multitude of colors, patterns and fabrics from which to choose.
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.
Decorative table linens are an easy way to set the mood at a dining table, whether for an ordinary dinner or a dinner party. These serve as the foundation for any good table setting. When linens are chosen wisely, your dining table will not only be perfect for casual dinners, but it will also express the theme of a dinner party successfully.
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.
