Zelia Tablecloth


These remarkable tablecloths are hand embroidered with traditional designs that have been passed down from generation to generation in a town in Northern Portugal. While originally executed in blue, white and red threads on white cloth, for the Zelia, we have paired down the color so the blue thread gracefully dances across the surface of the cotton uninterrupted. There is a pretty levity to these tablecloths that make them perfect for summer meals in the garden.

Dimensions: 108 x 67in; 275 x 170cm
Materials: 100% cotton with cotton thread
Care: Machine washable at 40 degrees. Do not tumble dry.


About the Maker

Founded in 1985, this atelier is dedicated to Viana do Castelo embroidery, which traditionally uses blue or red cotton to embroider patterns such as leaves, flowers and hearts of white cloth. After mastering this rich heritage, the atelier is now building on these techniques introducing new colors and designs. Their work has done much to revitalise this craft in Northern Portugal.
