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.

The retail business tradition is to order new merchandise in January-February, but we decided to buck tradition by ordering early. After all, we live in Southern California, where it’s spring year-round, and having an online store blurs the line of seasonality a bit as well. Here’s a sampler of new designs…
