Gingham is an iconic fabric often made from dyed cotton but also produced with cotton-blend yarn. It’s thought that it could be named after the French town of Guingamp, but it may also take its name from the Malay word 'genggang', which translates as ‘separate’. Gingham was originally striped when it first arrived in Europe around four centuries ago, but it has featured a checkered pattern for many years. Gingham shirts are heavily associated with mod culture, with many brands like Ben Sherman and Lambretta producing such garments. The pattern is also frequently used for female school uniforms and is often characterised by green and white checks though many other colour schemes are available.
An iconic pattern
At Only Oilcloths, we can come to your assistance if you are interested in purchasing tablecloths in the famous gingham style. Gingham has become an incredibly popular pattern for tablecloths over the years and never seems to fall out of favour. We offer gingham tablecloths in many different colours, including tango, lime, black, rose, forest green, sage, sunshine yellow and smoky grey. More and more customers are choosing us over the competition all the time when they require durable and reliable high-quality tablecloths in the gingham style.
Durable and dependable
The cotton fabrics that we use to produce our tablecloths feature a hot melt vinyl plastic coating, making them waterproof and enabling you to wipe them clean in moments. There have been many advancements in the coating process over the years, and it’s now possible to produce tablecloths that look less ‘plastic’ than they did previously. We are able to offer tablecloths with the traditional shiny gloss finish as well as matt oilcloths. You can contact us at any point if you do have any queries about any of the tablecloths in our catalogue.
Matt and gloss options
If you have young children or pets, the traditional gloss oilcloth will probably be the best option for you thanks to its heightened durability. However, matt oilcloths are increasing in popularity all the time and are frequently purchased by customers who have fewer concerns about damage. Our wipeable tablecloths allow you to breathe new life into your space with ease, and we have options to suit a huge range of tastes and preferences. No matter what your stylistic priorities are, we are confident we can provide you with something that suits.
Excellent visual appeal
The oilcloth tablecloths that we sell can protect your table from damage but also have outstanding visual qualities. We provide tablecloths for use in all sorts of environments, including not just residential homes but in cafes, restaurants, nurseries and many more. We can also assist you if you need tablecloths for outdoor environments and are able to provide a parasol hole if you are buying products for a garden or patio table. Our cloths will not fray or crack and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. For more information, simply give us a call on 01253 726666, or send an email to email@example.com
