What Is Toile Linen?
Toile linen has its roots in late 18th-century France. Toile is short for ‘Toile de Jouy,’ which means ‘cloth from Jouy,’ the French town where toile linen is thought to have originated.
Toile linen traditionally features a printed design that usually depicts rural scenes, harkening back to a bygone era. Animals, farm workers and rural landscapes are all common-place features. This makes toile linen ideal for picnics and traditional tea parties.
In recent years, toile linen has seen a resurgence in popularity. Toile linen hire now offers customers a wide variety of prints and colours that are available alongside napkins to hire.
