Eat: Organic Tablecloths
Our Ochre And Ocre Organic Cotton tablecloth print range is now available in three practical sizes, perfect for most kitchen and dining tables. Purchase in either natural Organic Cotton or with a practical PU wipeable coating. Perfect for casual suppers, a sophisticated dinner party or dining with children.
Ochre And Ocre’s wipeable table cloths not only make meal times stress free, they are also eco friendly. Our Organic Cotton is coated with Polyurethane, (PU). Aesthetically the PU is a lot thinner than standard oil cloth finishes, so the finished cloth does not have a high shine finish, and it drapes really well.. But as you would expect from Ochre And Ocre style is not enough, PU is also better for the environment and for humans.
PU is lead, Bisphenol-A(BPA) and phthalate free, especially important for dining with messy toddlers who are as likely to scoop food off the table as their bowl. The very thin layer of PU has been tested and found not to migrate into food or leave a “plastic” odour behind. The PU coating still allows materials to absorb humidity and it does not support the growth of micro organisms.
Pu has such good eco credentials it is used on hospital bedding, as it is breathable, comfortable and safe for skin contact. It is a sustainable material, and all polyurethanes can be recycled.
An Organic Cotton wipeable table cloth from Ochre And Ocre will save you and the planet energy, as it does not need to be washed, simply wipe clean.
Do be careful with "red" foodstuffs like ketchup and curry sauces as these will stain and should be wiped clean immediately to avoid permanent discolouration.
Our fabrics will fade if you leave them in direct sunlight for any period of time.
