We love these gingham placemats by French maker Maison de Vacances.  Cotton and linen, they wash beautifully.  The black binding just puts them over the top on chic.

While the size is perfect for a placemat as shown below.  We have been known to use them as large napkins also.

We also carry MDV napkins and tablecloths in gingham as well, check them out.

Linen/ cotton blend.

Made in France.
