Long placemats (runners) are the Italian way to set a table run these over the width of your table to create 2 place settings across from each other. Accent with same colored napkins or use an alternating color.
With its South American flavor, "Burraco" became a popular card game in Europe in the ’50s. This 100% pre-washed linen fabric has soft and delicate shades. The brilliance and the elegance of its long staple linen fiber, characteristic of weaves of our Italian Fine Linens Collection, particularly pops up in this fabric.
This table runner, "Cavaliere" in Italian, can be matched with other colorful runners and napkins of the same fabric or with other jacquard or geometrical patterns, for a unique and personalized setting.
