OUR FABRIC AND COATED COTTON COLLECTIONS
Fleur de Soleil?
Fleur de Soleil is a textile editor. These are our own fabric collections. We launch new products twice a year for the Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter collections. We design our own patterns or we work with textile designers according to our needs and desires, then we choose the colors. For each collection, we add new patterns and / or new colors and we only stop a few! Our patterns are therefore continued over several years.

OUR COTTON AND COATED COTTON FABRICS:
Our fabrics are available in exclusive Fleur de Soleil patterns. We create patterns that are both poetic and modern that we print on high quality cotton fabric! Cotton comes from Eastern Europe in cotton bales. It is spun, woven, bleached and printed in the Vosges, in Fance and it is certified Oeko -Tex class 1. Then our cotton is also coated in the Vosges without toxic products, neither for humans nor for the environment. Our coated canvas is guaranteed phthalate free .
We do not use organic cotton as we print large amounts of fabric and the supply would be too uncertain for regular monitoring. Between the moment we order our ecru (raw cotton before cleaning and bleaching) and the coated fabric, it takes 2 months. The manufacture is therefore industrial " long ".

ACRYLIC, TEFLON or OILCLOTH ?
The terms acrylic and Teflon coated tablecloths are used intergangeably. Most are made from either cotton, linen or a poly-cotton. They have a durable coating but it also gives fabric a more "natural" feel and they have the added bonus that they are machine washable. They can be sewn together and are perfect for making craft projects.
Historically Oilcloth was cotton fabric soaked in linseed oil and was also called oilskin. It was used as a tablecloth and also for clothing. Times have changed somewhat and modern oilcloth is normally 100% cotton and has a PVC laminated heat pressed onto the cotton to ensure the cloth is wipe-clean.
WHERE ARE OUR PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED ?
All our fabrics are woven, bleached, printed and coated in Gérardmer in the Vosges, in France. Our fabric stock is then sent to our partner workshop in Le Mans, where all orders are carefully prepared. The workshop is an ESAT, Establishment Specialised in Assistance through Work.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR TABLECLOTH?
For coated tablecloths we recommend a drop of 15-20cm on each side so as not to be disturbed when you sit down. Start by measuring your table and add 40cm to the width and length of the table and you have the tablecloth dimension you need.
I DON'T KNOW THE SIZE OF THE TABLE?
Don't panic, on each product sheet you have a “how to choose your size” category at the bottom of the page to help you determine the table size according to the number of guests.
If in doubt, you can contact us at email@example.com or at +33 (0) 9 71 43 38 70.
I CAN'T FIND THE COATED CANVAS TO THE SIZE I NEED?
If your dimensions are specific and you cannot find the tablecloth that suits you, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your dimensions and we will get back to you with the price of the tablecloth if possible.
The maximum available width is 160cm except in plain taupe which is available in 180cm wide.
You can also choose your tablecloth by the meter in the Haberdashery / fabric by the meter tab
CARE TIPS FOR OUR FABRICS
- FOR COATED COTTON PRODUCTS:
- Washing :
After each meal, clean your tablecloth with a sponge and clear water. For more stubborn stains, such as wine, coffee or tomato sauce, we advise you to clean them quickly, possibly with a little white vinegar.
Machine washing is possible at 40 ° C without fabric softener and with gentle spin.
- Ironing :
We recommend that you iron your coated cotton tablecloth after each machine wash because the heat of the iron reactivates the stain remover . You can iron on the wrong side or on the right side with a wet tab in cotton position.
- FOR COTTON PRODUCTS:
- Washing : our cotton fabrics can be machine washed at 60 ° C maximum.
- Ironing : you can iron in cotton position
DO THE COLORS HOLD IN THE WASH ?
Our prints are made with water soluble inks and free of toxic products. All our cottons are Oeko -Tex class 1 certified , which means that they are suitable even for the little ones.
The colors resist washing, like any cotton. You can wash cotton at 60 ° C if you wish.
A little advice valid for all the textiles you care about. In the same way that we recommend that you wash your jeans inside out or put your lingerie in a bag, put your fabric in a ball with the pattern printed on the inside. Why ? What is aggressive in a machine, it is not the products but the claws of the drum, therefore patterns and clothes go inside out, and do not overload the machine !
Second tip : use detergents without brighteners. Why ? In other words why " Ariel washes whiter " and Mir Colors takes care of the colors.
Optical brighteners are bleaching agents. They are the ones which give a slightly blue white in the sun and which dazzles. We have chosen not to bleach our fabrics with optical brighteners, so they are a little less white but more natural and less dazzling ...
These brighteners contained in your laundry bleach colors. You can take the test, it is rare to find detergents without brighteners. So long live Mir Couleurs !
Our coating is made with a secret recipe without toxic products. There are no phthalate because phthalates are only present in PVC, polyvinyl chloride. However, our coating is an acrylic resin, water-based, therefore solvent-free. It is the equivalent of acrylic paint and oil paint. Acrylic dissolves in water, oil in turpentine or white spirit, which are solvents.

DO COATED COTTON TABLECLOTHS RESIST IN THE SUN?
Our coated cotton tablecloths are very suitable as garden tablecloths, to put them on tables outside. But remember that the cotton side remains cotton and therefore is not waterproof. The coating forming a screen, the tablecloth may mold on the cotton side, the water remaining trapped.
Watch out for the sun and especially the moon.
We do our utmost to have UV resistant colors . But certain colors are more fragile, pinks and oranges… Especially when the colors are in small quantity or in mixtures, which can be the case of the taupe .
Why the moon ? The ancients understood this well by whitening their sheets in the moonlight or more specifically by the sun's rays through the moon.
So what to do ? If you want to keep your tablecloths impeccable for a long time, store them in the evening with your cushions ;-) !
AFTER SOME TIME, THE TABLECLOTH IS STICKY ...
Here is an unsolved mystery and a vast debate between the person in charge of the coating and us. From time to time we have returns of tablecloth that "stick". Unfortunately for us, no other explanation than certain cleaning products used, the heat, the sweat of the forearms ... A natural phenomenon on a certain number of materials in hot weather.
But the good news is that it is very simple that it does not stick anymore. You just need to put a little talcum powder or even flour on the table and wipe off the excess. Guaranteed efficiency!
