The other side of oilcloth...

I get asked about the back of oilcloth often, so I thought I'd give you a close up look at the hard wearing fabric. The back of oilcloth is impregnated with a cotton mesh or scrim, this gives oilcloth it's edge over flimsy flannel backed vinyl. The scrim gives oilcloth strength, because of this cotton mesh oilcloth can hold a stitch where the other can not.
