Softweave Linens by Marko Carlisle are made of spun filament polyester which is a blend of poly spun and poly filament. They provide the look and feel of cotton without fading or shrinking. Everyone loves the feel of cotton, but no one likes the wear and tear and color fading. Softweave has an advance-release technology with quick liquid absorption. What's more is that they have an excellent resistance to piling and snagging. This type of fabric is a perfect fit for tablecloths and napkins. Remember, it feels like cotton, but has super tough qualities that one would expect and require for restaurant use.
