Oilcloth from Mexico - Green Calico - 1/2mtr (50cms x 120cms)
Half-a-metre cut. 50cms x 120cms. Oilcloth is the fabric that has been making a bold color statement in our homes and has been for so many, many years. It comes in vibrant colors and used to cover our dining tables.
Oilcloth has a mesh backing, which means it can really hold a stitch. It can be used for anything that needs to be durable and colorful--tablecloths, upholstered dining room chairs, curtains, bibs, lampshades, tissue boxes, outdoor chairs, etc. The oilcloth of yesteryear was resin-coated vinyl and the finish sometimes cracked or flaked. The new version is made of hi-tech plastic that won't crack but has the same colorful shine. It wipes clean so it's practical, especially with children in the house. OilCloth is waterproof in addition to being stain and soil resistant. Fading may occur under intense direct sunlight for extended periods.
