We did quite a bit of homework, so if it’s a premium quality tablecloth you’re after, the unparalleled look, benefits and longevity of polyester are truly amazing.
You may have landed here with the preconception, that with the substantially lower price of polyester comes a lower quality tablecloth, but that certainly isn’t the case.
Advantages of Polyester
- Crisp, but soft hand
- Resists stretching and shrinkage
- Washable or dry-cleanable
- Quick drying
- Resilient, resists wrinkles
- Abrasion resistant
- Resistant to most chemicals
- Strong, durable
- Dyes well
Whether you need tablecloths for your own special event, your party business, are planning a lavish wedding, or even want to step up your trade-show presentation game, polyester outshines other fabrics every time, always.
Polyester boasts incredible versatility and looks better longer, thanks to its durability. Cotton is nice, a little less risky and affordable compared to silk, but with just one wash it can fade and shrink. We’ve heard from those in the industry, it’s simply not worth the risk or expense.
Disadvantages of Cotton
- Natural fibers wear down faster
- Not a very strong fabric.
- Absorbent – heavy and takes a long time to dry
- Stains easily.
- Poor elasticity so creases badly.
- Shrinks badly.
- Highly flammable and burns quickly.
- Attacked by mildew if left damp.
Lann’s Linens’ high quality polyester tablecloths simply hold their rich color infinitely better than other fabrics, because they won’t fade. Polyester resists wrinkles far more desirably than its cotton counterparts, so you can skip the hassle and headache of needing your tablecloths ironed after each use.
