Oilcloth Designs for Holiday Season: From Halloween to Christmas and More

What is Oilcloth Fabric?

Also known as American cloth or enameled cloth, oilcloth was traditionally a close-woven linen cloth that used boiled linseed oil as a coating, providing its waterproof quality. Modern oilcloth may be cotton with a PVC coating or even vinyl. Regardless of what oilcloth is made from, it’s considered durable fabric and water-resistant.

Oilcloth is waterproof due to its unique coating making it also resistant to liquid stains, which makes it extremely easy to clean. Due to being prone to wrinkling, it’s best to roll it up when it comes to storage. Because oilcloth is waterproof, machine washing is not recommended and will not be effective. Wipe clean with a soft soapy cloth and rinse with vinegar to restore shine if needed. Ironing or machine drying is not recommended. It is relatively stain proof but pen marks or other surface stains can be easily removed. There is no UV inhibitor added so extended exposure to strong sunlight can fade.

Looking for waterproof, outdoor fabrics? We recommend Sunbrella. 

Oilcloth fabric can be made from different designs, patterns, and colors.

What are Oilcloth Fabrics Used for?

Applications include tablecloths, place mats, lunch bags, pillows, equipment covers, bags, totes, tents, and drawer linings. What oilcloth offers now is its flexibility in its application and how long-lasting it is even under constant use.
