DIA DE LOS MUERTOS - DAY OF THE DEAD - AMERICA'S NEWEST HOLIDAY

Mexican Oilcloth

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 available; many designs come from re-engraved rollers that originated back in 1930’s Mexico.
