The Tavola tablecloth is a monochrome cotton and linen tablecloth with an exceptionally refined coloured satin-stitch edged finish. Available in two colours.
Portuguese textile savoir-faire
Our Tavola table linen is a product of pure craftsmanship and is created using the unique textile expertise of our Portuguese workshops. When it came to choosing our manufacturers, Portugal seemed to be a natural choice. Portugal - and in particular the Porto region - has a long history in the manufacture of linen. It has been a benchmark for quality since the 19th century.
Working with natural cotton and linen fibres takes time. These materials are as skin-friendly as they are environmentally friendly. Which is why it takes several days of work to produce a piece of our Tavola household linen. Each tablecloth, each table napkin, is made of a blend of 50% cotton and 50% linen for optimal strength, without losing any softness.
Tavola, beautiful finishes
In addition to the palette of colours (a bright white and a warm brown) chosen by our founder and director Constance Gennari, our design studio has decided to take it further by applying a satin-stitched finish to the edge of our Tavola table linen. A decorative stitch that gives our delicate creations a new dimension. A coloured border (mustard for white linen, green for brown linen), with a very tight zigzag stitched edging, which gives lots of character to our solid monochrome fabrics.
Our Tavola table linen is a synthesis of our values and commitments. With an elegance redolent of bygone days, our care in the choice of finishes and materials complements the craftsmanship so dear to our hearts at The Socialite Family.
