Oilcloth is a beautiful and flexible waterproof and stain resistant material made out of vinyl. Oil cloth is most commonly used as a tablecloth because of its ease of use and beauty but it's used as well for luggage, furniture, tablecloth, coverings, shelf liners and crafts. Our oilcloth is mostly imported from Europe and is sold wholesale direct typically by the roll if ordering 10 yards or more. When purchasing in small quantities the fabric may ship folded and may have creases. Disclosure: Some may consider this to be only a vinyl and not oilcloth and many will consider this to be just a vinyl fabric.
