It is a very versatile piece that adapts to many styles of decoration, creating a very special point of attention.
We have woven these tablecloths by hand on our artisan looms, in a variant of the technique called taffeta, to create a fabric with a subtle texture and a soft touch that is very pleasant.
The ends are overlocked so that the fabric does not unravel and they have a reinforced machine seam to support machine washes without any problem. It is already washed and ironed.
Cotton is one of the first fibers used to make textiles due to its exceptional qualities, it is soft, flexible, durable, absorbent, breathable and totally versatile: cool or warm. It is one of the few fibers that, depending on the thickness of its yarn, can be used both in summer, fine and cool, and in winter, thick and warm.
Linen is an extraordinary noble fiber used since ancient times. It is a comfortable and elegant fiber with many applications both in fashion and at home. It has a series of characteristics that make it unmatched, it is antibacterial, fungicidal and its well-known resistance to heat, even UV radiation, make it especially suitable for summer.

COMMON FEATURES IN OUR SUSTAINABLE LUXURY FABRICS.
This piece is unique, designed and handwoven by us on a manual wooden artisan loom, moved by our hands and feet, we weave it strand by strand, with the best quality natural fiber, the best to wear or use in contact with your skin and we take care of all the details so that you have a piece, timeless, durable and of high quality.
All its finishes are made by hand. It does not have knots in the warp (vertical threads) nor in the weft (horizontal threads). The weft splices are collected by hand in the selvedges with a needle, achieving a more complete and better quality finish.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing if it has it and take its final measurement, something essential for us, all the pieces woven on the artisan loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers are repositioned (This is only done in the first wash, then they do not shrink any more). And then we iron it by hand with steam so that once it is finished, you can appreciate all its qualities.
