Product Assistance: For The Table
Placemats are small in size with rectangular, round or oval shapes. They are available in various colors and materials. A placemat serves to protect your table from heat and scratches, and is a wonderful way to create a unique look all your own.
Similar to tablecloths and napkins, placemats can be made of cotton, linen, silk and cotton/polyester blends. Cotton, Linen, and Silk are machine washable, and require ironing, while cotton/polyester blends are easy-care (machine washable/no iron). Cotton, Linen, and Silk placemats are typically used for more formal settings while cotton/polyester blends are used for casual everyday dining. However, placemats are available in more than just traditional fabrics...
