Patzcuaro Mexico Tablecloth
Several people have asked me about the cotton textiles from Michoacan that last and last and are woven on a floor loom. Here they are! I found these colorful, cotton, handwoven tablecloths and napkins on my last trip to Patzcuaro. I dare you to not think "fiesta"when you see these! They are beautifully finished and the colors are vivid and joyful. The napkins come in several different's cotton so it should be washed in cold water. They get softer with washing but the color stays true (if you follow directions and use cold water). Several sizes available, check the page right here.
  • Hi Cecily, I am not sure why they shrunk if you washed them in cold and let them air dry. Don’t put in the dryer! Just smooth it out and let it dry in the air. I guess you could handwash your other items in cold water—maybe your washing machine was warmer than you thought? Not sure! Anne from Zinnia Folk Arts

  • Hi there, I purchased these in Zihuatenejo on my last visit, but when I washed the napkins, they shrunk-even though I washed them on cold. Any suggestions on how to wash the rest of my items?

  • Do you still have this tablecloth and if so how much?
