Material Choices For the Modern Tablecloth
Tablecloths; they are available in a myriad of shapes, sizes and even materials. Over the years, material choices have been refined and updated, as new technologies have been developed to ensure that modern tablecloths can withstand everything we have to throw at them (literally!)
Traditionally, tablecloths have been manufactured from natural materials such as cotton but nowadays we have a whole host of options to complement the traditional fabric choices such as PVC coated tablecloths and vinyl tablecloths too.
Both of these materials are extremely hard wearing and can be easily wiped down should a spillage occur. Their water resilient nature makes them the ideal choice for any occasion where an easy clean, durable table protector is needed. An added benefit of a PVC or vinyl tablecloth is that they will be much less likely to rip or tear.
Of course, we are not saying that you should abandon traditional materials, oh no. Nowadays, tablecloths can combine the old and the new in that they can be made from fabric but are covered with a clear PVC coating to make them hard wearing. This combination of old and new makes them the ideal compromise for anyone wanting a beautiful but long lasting tablecloth.
Both vinyl and PVC tablecloths are versatile in that they lend themselves to all sorts of different occasions. Whether it’s a child’s birthday or a garden party, both of these materials can cope. It’s also important not to forget that these tablecloths are available in many different colours further adding to their versatility.
No matter whether you prefer bold patterns or plain colours, you are sure to be able to find a tablecloth that meets your requirements. No ironing is required with these material choices and what’s more, should you need to alter their size, it can be done so with ease. Simply cut to size, no hemming required.
So, one thing remains. Where do you go if you want to get your hands on one of these hardwearing tablecloths that look great too? Well, the answer is quite simple.
