Why choose fabric instead of disposable

Choosing fabric table linens for hotels and restaurants can be a winning solution over disposable ones. Let’s find out all the advantages of this choice.


Hotel and restaurant table linens are a key element in creating a welcoming and professional atmosphere necessary to meet the needs of guests and customers. Several factors related to fabric must be considered, both in terms of quality and for many aesthetic reasons, not to mention the issue of sustainability. In this article, we will explore why choosing fabric over disposable for hotel and restaurant table linens is better.

Table linens for hotels and restaurants: why to choose fabric

Proper tablecloth selection is essential for any hospitality facility, whether a hotel or a restaurant. But why is a cloth tablecloth better than a disposable one, and what are the benefits of this assessment? Let’s look together at six immediate benefits that confirm the superiority of fabric over disposable.

Quality of materials

Let’s think about the customer, his comfort, and the perception of quality that the facility wants to give. Undeniably, a fabric tablecloth can offer superior performance compared to a disposable. A fabric made in Italy, soft to the touch, and designed to last over time, it is undoubtedly a choice that will not go unnoticed, ideal for welcoming the final customer in the best possible way..


Choosing fabric instead of disposable is a more sustainable choice. Single-use products represent a significant source of waste, which is in open contrast to the logic of sustainability and care for the environment, which is also increasingly pervasive in customer selection criteria. In contrast, the fabric can be washed, ironed, and reused: as reported by a study commissioned by the Tuscan Laundry Consortium, this saves more than 80 percent of non-renewable material resources, 60 percent of water and equally non-renewable energy resources, 55 percent of greenhouse gas emissions and 75 percent of waste.

Increased sanitation

Textile table linen is sanitized each time it is used by washing at a temperature above 60°, after which it is subjected to ironing at a temperature above 180°. This sanitization eliminates all microorganisms and thoroughly disinfects the table linen, ensuring maximum hygiene for the customer.

Strength and durability

Fabric is more durable and resistant. Disposable items are made of materials intended, by definition, to be used only once before being thrown away. Because of this, they often begin to degrade as early as during the use itself, with all the attendant implications in terms of customer comfort and inconvenience. In contrast, choosing a high-quality fabric designed to last over time means that tablecloths are not constantly replaced.

Aesthetics and comfort

Fabric offers a more rewarding experience for hotel or restaurant guests, both aesthetically and in terms of comfort. Unlike disposable, a soft and comfortable material will provide guests with only the best in comfort, aesthetics, and sophistication, perfectly tracing the spirit and tradition of Italian cuisine.


Choosing fabric for table linens can also be a way to differentiate yourself from the competition. Opting for a high-quality material customized with designs, logos, or embroidery can be a win-win for a hotel or restaurant that wants to offer a unique experience in all respects.
