Wilendur tablecloth pieces make perfect pillow covers for Spring and Summer. The designs are colorful, fresh, and cheerful. This listing is one of a number of Wilendur pieces listed in my shop. These are not whole tablecloths. They are cut pieces to use for pillow fronts and similar projects. They could also be framed or used for smaller projects. Details are:
~ THIS IS NOT A WHOLE TABLECLOTH. It is a piece of a tablecloth that has a single design, to be re-purposed for craft and sewing projects. The listing is for a 18-inch by 17-inch piece from a Wilendur vintage tablecloth in the rare Lobsters design.
~ The exact and entire piece is shown in the 1st photo. It measures 18 inches wide and 17 inches high. The bottom edge is a narrow hem. The other 3 edges are rotary cut.
~ The piece is from a tablecloth that was used rarely if at all, but was a cutter because it had not been properly stored and had damage to part of it. The colors are remarkably bright and crisp. The piece is in excellent condition, with no flaws or blemishes.
~ Note that the yellowish cast on the lower right portion of the photos is from a light source in the room. The background of the piece is evenly creamy white. Wilendur tablecloths were characteristically creamy white when new, rather than stark white. The background always got more white with laundering. Since this piece was laundered only once, the background is still creamy white, not stark white.
This piece would be perfect to use for a pillow front, tote or other projects. It would also be a wonderful piece to frame.
Wilendur tablecloths are the "gold standard" in vintage tablecloths, by which all other vintage tablecloths are judged. The Wilendur brand was made by The Weil & Durrsè Company, which was headquartered in the New York City garment district. In the introduction to her book "Elegant Table Linens" by Michelle Hayes (which is the Wilendur “bible”), Michelle Hayes writes:
"Those who fall in love with vintage linens are grateful that the Weil & Durrsè Company created artistic designs with brilliant rich colors and exquisite shading on quality fabric. Their famous Wilendur brand is the benchmark for all others. The linens produced by Weil & Durrsè are the most sought after and desired of all the printed vintage household cloths. This was no accident. Weil & Durrsè stated on many of their labels: 'Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.' "
I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that this piece is cut are from a vintage tablecloth that was likely gently used. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.
On purchases of multiple items, Etsy calculates combined shipping when purchases are made on the same invoice (all items in a cart at once), but the amount is not always correct. I refund shipping overcharges of more than $1.00 immediately following shipment.
If a buyer wishes to have an order shipped to an address other than the buyer's address, the shipping address must be entered during the checkout process. Specifying a different address by convo or message is not sufficient to permit me to ship to that address. If an address changed is requested, I will refund and cancel the order, and ask the buyer to repurchase using the correct shipping address, in compliance with the Etsy Seller Protection Policy.
I no longer ship internationally to any country. Shipping is to U.S. addresses only.
I accept payment through Paypal via Paypal balance, credit card, or direct bank transfer, or through Etsy payments. I do not accept eCheck payments. I do not offer layaway services or installment payment plans.
Returns & exchanges
I accept returns only if I have made a mistake in the listing or an item otherwise is not as described in the listing, as long as the return is postmarked within 3 business days of receipt and is returned in exactly the same condition as it was received.

All of my listings are sold on a first come, first served basis. I do not "hold" or "reserve" items for purchase at a later time.
My prices are the same for everyone. I do not add a cushion to prices to allow for negotiating price or provide for free shipping. I treat all buyers the same and keep my prices as low as possible for everyone, rather than negotiating special prices for individual buyers.
