The History of Floorcloths

Floorcloths combined beauty and functionality as far back as the 1400s in France, by decorating drab floors as well as reducing drafts between the wide boards and serving as “crumb catchers” beneath dining tables. Their popularity spread to England and by the early 1700s they were gracing the floors of American homes, even those of our presidents. Though their usefulness declined after the advent of linoleum, floorcloths reappeared as an art form in the 1960s, and today the passion for decorative home furnishings is embracing these easy-to-maintain, long-lasting works of art.

Caring for your Floorcloth

Take care of your floorcloth by placing a non-skid rubber pad beneath it, using felt pads on the legs of chairs and tables, vacuuming regularly, and cleaning with mild soap and water as needed.
