Christmas Tablecloth Ideas

Le Jacquard Francais first created their Limited Edition Holidays tablecloth with the traditional red and green featuring Holiday ornaments.  This was a sell out fast fast fast. Then as each year brought a new pattern some featured Reindeer such as Laponie, Chamonix in holly, and Joyeuese ornaments again only in white and grey and then in 100% Linen (a big Huge favorite of F&B), now we are back to the ornamental settings ONLY with the Grey modern twist.  Again, Scintillement is limited edition. Orders are not going to be fulfilled all the time.  I know, we have said this before and then it is in stock again.  That is because we search high and low through the French shops to find it and get it to the USA.  USA is a biggest customer of French linens. F&B realized this and searches, even to the extent of getting a bit of trouble.  Please see the beautiful Jacquard tablecloth and napkins, I think to purchase now is best. Placemat- stain resistent and beautiful with lurux in silver shine.

Holiday Table sSttings for December

Many times I have heard from my customers that they open the tablecloth and napkin set only to discover those stains that never were removed.  What to do? There are a few options? Try to remove the stains with the Le Blanc Linen wash. Secret is to soak the linen where it is stained for 20 minutes just by pouring out some detergent and rubbing it in the fabric.  Then launder as usual, but do not put in the dryer as this would set any stain that remained. Repeat this process over and over until success. Read more


Thanksgiving Table linens for 2015

Traditional Thanksgiving Day feasts have always created a newness for the perfect end of the year. We are thankful for all the gifts we have in our lives. Also, reflecting on our young and old is a gift! This is done in many fashions as tradition is pretty much an individual decorating for the d├ęcor despite the meal of Turkey with dressing, potatoes and gravy, and cranberries, and all the harvest goodness. What is Thanksgiving without the Pumpkin pie, Apple pie, etc. We are just in our "Thanksgiving Day feast" mode and hope that the linens survived from last year. Hopefully, Linen wash was used to help get those foodies stains out. Read more


Luxury Bed Linen Ideas for Fall 2015

Imported Egyptian cotton is or always has been the ultimate in fabric for creating soft durable and fashionable bed linens. Mostly, it is because of the region growing the fibers not being in the USA. We import from Italy and abroad to get these finer threads on the list for shopping be it Duvet covers, Top sheet, and or just Pillow shams. The choices have always been plentiful. And, if we did not like what we saw here we jetted off to the Euro markets to purchase from their fine shops. Read more


Matelasse Bed Linens

Matelasse coverlets evolved as a direct result from the beginning of time and ever most precious Quilt. As quilting became cumbersome and expensive people needed the next step in similar product.  Quilting is more now adays known from exotique locations such as China (remember the Ecru color is dyed from tea and can be removed in laundering from a stain remover) or even local USA women who spend about 1 year creating the perfect family quilt. Smaller parts of quilting can be adjoined to create the giant spread.
As quilts were not apart of our main element of selling, F&B Linen focused on the Matelasse. I cannot remember when we did not offer as a basic bedding. Read more

Coated Tablecloth vs Laminated Tablecloth

Coated tablecloth is just that - coated cotton- real 100% cotton that has a light acrylic surface. Tablecloth side on table is cotton side with the acrylic side facing up and taking all the spills.  When you receive your tablecloth the label may say 96% cotton and 4% acrylic, customs reasons is all but sounds right.  Coated tablecloths have become the 2nd largest selection for fine tablecloths.  Besides the 100% cotton jacquards, the coated tablecloth is considered vastly by many who like that extra quality stain free care.
