Perfect for placemats, tablecloths, or anything kept outdoors, Marimekko coated cotton fabrics have a soil and water-repellent surface that is easily wiped clean. Also known as oilcloth, Marimekko coated cotton fabrics are not the same as the oilcloths of the past. Most Marimekko coated cotton fabric is coated with PVC, which is free from phtalates and BPA. As Marimekko continues to find ways to reduce it's environmental footprint, newer Marimekko fabrics are coated with acrylic and share the same great properties. All Marimekko fabrics are still printed in Finland, true to the textile expert Marimekko's roots.
