Let us introduce you to the stunningly attractive Acanto tablecloth from Allora. Made from natural hemp cloth, it has been delicately printed by hand using blocks intricately carved from pear wood. As you can see, the designers chose to leave the hemp material in its natural form, displaying the soft beige colour of the hemp fibre.
Why choose hemp?
We have chosen to add hemp cloth to our range as it compliments well with the existing hand-woven line. Hemp is a wonderful material as it is totally Green and eco-friendly. With many sustainable qualities, farmers can grow it easily without the need to use any unpleasant or harmful chemicals such as fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides. This means that the farmer’s hemp crops are completely organic and free-from additives. Gone are the days when hemp cloth was used for rough old grain sacks; now the material produced from the organic hemp is soft, beautiful to look at and incredibly strong. If you appreciate the look and feel of linen, you will love hemp.
The Allora hemp tablecloth has been woven by Italian craftsmen using pure undyed hemp cloth. A practical and attractive fabric, any natural irregularities in the weave adds to its beauty and enhance its hand-made qualities. Carefully printed using carved wooden blocks, the process guarantees that no two tablecloths are ever identical. Whilst they look good side by side, each one will have small differences that add to its classical good looks. Whether you are purchasing the Acanto tablecloth from Allora as a special gift or for yourself to use in the home, you will be delighted with it.
A spectacular addition to any table
Decorated with the Acanto hand-printed design in white, the natural undyed tablecloth makes a spectacular addition to any table. The hand-carved pear wood blocks are dipped into the natural white dye and then gently applied to the hemp material. This takes a great deal of time but the results are stunning. Italian artisans have been using the same techniques for hundreds of years and never fail to produce a practical ‘work of art’ for use in your home. Finished off with hand-stitching, the results are nothing short of impressive.
