Here's how: for rectangular or oval tablecloths, simply specify the dimensions and shape; for unusual table shapes (e.g. a hexagon), it is best to create a template of half of the table – we can then add the other half symmetrically. For a perfect fit, we recommend an overhang of 25-30 cm on each side. We will take possible after-wash shrinkage into account when producing the tablecloth.
We select the highest quality weaving, dying and finishing processes so that you can enjoy your tablecloth for years to come. Ultimately, ease of care, colour fastness and form stability are not just nice words – they have been our goal for 150 years.
Our products are labelled with individual care instructions written with the specific materials in mind. Please always follow the individual symbols.
When washing coloured table linen, only use colour detergent with no optical brighteners (all-purpose detergents contain optical brighteners). During the washing process, these chemical substances are absorbed into the fibres and permanently change the colour of coloured fabric, causing the colours to lose their brilliance.
Ensure that you use the correct washing temperature and follow the washing machine loading instructions. A load which is not quite full is gentler on the fabric, increases its service life and reduces wrinkles.
During their first wash, textile fabrics naturally shrink by approximately 3 to 5 percent. A 60°C wash usually sufficiently removes stains when using modern laundry detergents. Unless otherwise indicated on the label, hot washes are also possible for coloured items, but are only recommended in the event of stubborn stains as they are not as gentle on the fabric.
Please note that fabric may shrink more during a hot wash than during a standard 60°C wash.
Always wash fabrics blended with polyester using a gentle cycle to avoid creasing.
It is very important not to let stains dry for too long.
Pre-treat stubborn stains (e.g. with liquid soap and by leaving to soak).
