New Shipment of tablecloths! I drove down to see our seamstress last week & brought back a van load! The Frida on black cloth has run out but rolls are at the Border waiting to cross Customs after the holiday. All Frida black should be back by mid-July. I had one customer call yesterday asking for the "Covid Cloth"- it's so easy to sanitize that it's hard to keep in stock. Thank you everyone.
When I think of beautiful Mexican kitchens, I conjure up pictures of thick adobe walls, hand painted tiles, wood carved spoons and clay cooking pots. Old kitchens would always have big buckets of fresh flowers, cascades of fresh fruit and herbs, braids of garlic and red chiles hanging over the stone metate.
In the 1930’s, oilcloth fabric became a bright & colorful addition to the kitchen, work area, dining room and open-air market food stalls. It came in many delightful designs, which were influenced by European textile designs of the day.
We carry the best oilcloth tablecloth available; many designs come from re-engraved rollers that originated back in 1930’s Mexico.
