Table Linen, a need of the modern society


In many cultures a white or any colour tablecloth is used as the standard covering for a dinner table.  Over time it has become a custom of arranging tableware,  table cloth or  linen on a table for most social classes except the very poorest. As eating habits changed in the 20th century, a much greater range of table-setting styles developed. Some formal dinners still use white tablecloths, often with a damask weave, but other colours and patterns are possible.  In the later medieval period spreading a high quality white linen or cotton cloth was an important part of preparing for a feast in a wealthy household.

Some are mainly ornamental coverings, which may also help protect the table from scratches and stains.

Special kinds of tablecloth include runners which overhang the table at two ends only, and table protectors to provide a padded layer under a normal cloth.
