With roots that date back at least a century, oilcloth was a traditional fabric used for tablecloths and other protective coverings. Some may fondly remember grandma laying a piece down before making preserves.
Modern varieties differ in their construction, often using PVC as opposed to linseed oil, but they offer the same benefits of being waterproof and highly stain resistant. These two notable advantages make oilcloth a classic choice in tablecloth material. Nostalgic and functional, this fabric brings a classic touch to any kitchen.
