The Timeless Charm of Gingham Print

A Classic Choice for Table Dressings

The Vichy fabric, with its unmistakable checkered pattern, is a timeless fabric that has undoubtedly been rediscovered in recent times in many areas; on the table, of course, but also in clothing and accessories, and very prominently, in home decor. We can talk about a true upward trend of Vichy fabric followers: “Vichymania”.

Vichy checks are fashionable and increasingly sought after in many table stylings. This fabric has come back strongly to take a prominent place on our tables. Because Vichy check is much more versatile than we thought. Its crisp and clean appearance adds a touch of charm and nostalgia to any setting.

History of Vichy Fabric

Vichy has a rich history dating back centuries. Originating in the 17th century, the first Vichy check fabric was woven with cotton or linen and featured stripe patterns. During the 18th century, checkered fabrics gained popularity in Europe, particularly in England and France. Vichy became synonymous with simplicity, durability, and affordability, making it the favorite choice for everyday clothing and home textiles.

Cases & More and Vichy Check Fabric

Although Vichy checks are often associated with quaint country kitchens and picnics in the park, we could say that Vichy fabric has elevated its status and we find it adorning beautiful tables that surprise us.

At Cases & More, we’ve embraced this Vichy pattern for its nostalgic charm and its ability to create an eclectic style bridging yesterday and today, reviving wonderful forgotten tableware. Many of our younger customers already appreciate Vichy fabric and use it to adorn their tables on special occasions.

At Cases & More, we like to pair Vichy fabric with floral napkins or other traditional fabrics like Toile de Jouy, to create a contrast of unexpected elegance. Of course, the combination of Vichy check with floral or “Cartuja” dinnerware leads to the creation of an irresistible table that leaves no one indifferent.

The Vichy Fabric in Various Cases & More Products

Tablecloths: Cases & More offers a very comprehensive range of Vichy check fabrics, in various sizes and colors. In terms of size, we offer the normal Vichy (1cmx1cm), small Vichy (0.5cmx0.5cm), and XXL Vichy (5cmx5cm). The color range of Vichy fabric is extensive, but at Cases & More, we offer a wide selection of Vichy checks in different colors, carefully chosen to suit different seasons or indoor and outdoor settings that we love.

Napkins: Vichy fabric napkins can be combined with either a plain tablecloth or with a tablecloth made of the same fabric. We also like to mix the same fabric in different check sizes. It brings originality and casualness to your table.

Table runners: Vichy check table runners are an elegant way to dress your table, either over another tablecloth or directly on your table. You decide, and you’ll surely do it well!

Placemats: Vichy fabric placemats from Cases & More have been part of our collection from day one. They are highly sought after for their comfort and design. We make them in standard size (50cmx35cm) because we’ve found that it’s the size where a full place setting (plates, glasses, cutlery, bread plate, and napkins) will surely fit. But they can be made to measure if you desire.

Charger plate covers: One of our favorite ways to add a special touch to our tables is to use charger plate covers that contrast with our tablecloths or the color of our tables or placemats. Vichy charger plate covers are ideal for those garden tables that we start enjoying as soon as the good weather arrives.
