My tried and true, everyday linens, are white, Mountain Weave tablecloths, placemats and napkins from The Vermont Country Store,

I’ve had my collection for years, and have determined that they’re pretty much indestructible. Made out of 100% US grown cotton, these Vermont woven workhorses have been subjected to a gazillion washings and they’re still in amazing shape. With a little bleach, any stain comes out. When I take them out of the dryer, I smooth each one by hand and fold them – no need to iron! Gotta love that!
