What is Oilcloth?

We are asked this on a daily basis....

Oilcloth use dates back to the 18th Century where it used linen as a base cloth and was then coated with linseed-oil, hence the name oilcloth, it has also been called oilskin. Used as a table-covering and as a floor covering. Unfortunately, this method meant the cloth became quite brittle.

Fast forward to now and we have Oilcloth, PVC Vinyl and acrylic fabric all of which are sold by Jolee Tablecloths.

Modern oilcloth is now traditionally a cotton, linen or poly-cotton base fabric. It is then coated with a PVC laminate which gives it its wipeclean properties. Oilcloth can be sewn together and is extremely popular with crafters who make oilcloth bags, aprons, peg bags and even iPad covers.


We specialise in supplying oilcloth tablecloth to the UK and rest of the world. What is oilcloth you may ask if you’re a newbie in the world of tablecloths (don’t worry, we’ll guide you through).
