Coated tablecloths are so easy to clean, perfect for dining with children and entertaining during the holidays and beyond. Many of you are familar with our acrylic-coated tablecloths from the French brands Vent du Sud and Le Cluny, but did you know we also carry coated tablecloths from an American company?

Petal Pushing follows a long tradition of textile making in India. Just like Provençal linens, their designs are inspired by the flowers and colors found in nature. These beautiful products of nature are carved into individual blocks, which are hand-printed onto the fabrics.

Petal Pushing products are made with care, and are eco-friendly and fair trade products as well; fabrics are Azo-free and machine-washable. The tablecloths we carry are coated with polyurethane for easy care (similar to the acrylic coating used by other brands). We also offer tote bags and scarves in coordinating prints.

A French household staple that is hard to find in the US, the bath mitt (gant de toilette in French) is a clever design for the bath. Slip the mitt over your hand, add water and your favorite French soap, and it will turn into a soft and non-slippery scrubber. Launder your mitt with your other bath towels, and it will outlast nylon poufs or gloves.

Anne de Solene is known for soft, high-quality bath linens made in Europe, including these long-staple combed cotton bath mitts. We carry them in 16 beautiful colors, from a basic white to a bright poppy red. Combine with our French soaps for holiday gifts, and don’t forget to keep a few for yourself!
