General Information

Lively Tablecloths from French Flanders.

The Charvet weaving mill has been located for more than one hundred years in the French village of Armentières, near to Flanders. Armentières lies north-west of the city of Lille, on the right bank of the river Lys. When the town became French in 1668, along with most of the rest of French Flanders, crop farming was typical for the region. But at the end of the 19th century, Armentières acquired fame, being the “City of Fabric” and entering an era of large-scale spinning and weaving with yarns made of flax as a speciality. The weaving mill of the Charvet family has light cotton weave in its product range as well as robust linen fabrics, from which some of the widely used items in French working clothes were made. Fishermen’s vests (the famous “vareuse”) and bakers’ towels ("toiles de boulangerie") were made of Charvet’s linen. With all the expertise gathered by making utility clothes, the Charvet’s linens are durable, robust and resilient against challenges of everyday life but beautiful with it.

Heavy linen with a radiance of freshness.

Light blue stripes along the length of the tablecloths accentuate the natural coloured, robust linen. The tablecloths are woven in plain weave, while the delicate block pattern in blue and white is woven in Jacquard technique.

A note on care:

Machine washable at 40 °C. We recommend washing in the delicate cycle with a half load and reduced spin cycle. Shrinkage 6–8%.
