My New Italian Linen Tablecloth from Italy

While vacationing in Siena, Tuscany back in October, I came across this beautiful linen tablecloth. I knew at first sight it was going back home with me to the US. The tablecloth came with six beautiful napkins. The pattern I chose was the pomegranate which stands for good luck in Italy. Can't you tell that I was a happy girl?




So now I want to show you close ups and  how it looks on my table......




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The linens are made near Siena where I vacationed by the Bertozzi family.  They are hand stamped by original hand carved wooden molds.  Fast vegetable dyes are used on the linens which are permanent and fade resistant.
 
I have also included some tips on purchasing high quality linens from Italy.  See here.
 
Well I hope you liked my new linen tablecloth as much as I do. 
 
BTW - I wanted to include a pomegranate in the photos, however, I went to several grocery stores and they were not available.  I love the seeds which are a healthy snack and great in salads, too!  So instead, I have included a photo from the pomegranates that were on the property of the vineyard/bed and breakfast where we stayed in Tuscany.
 
 
 
Thanks for your visit.
