I was advised by the Amish to wash intense colors like this with a palmfull of salt in the wash. It kept the colors fast. Beautiful craftsmanship.

"A beautiful house gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Although I originally planned to use this myself, I ended up giving it to my cherished sister-in-law when I realized how perfectly the runner and matching napkins went with her home decor. She has a bigger dining table and typically entertains more than I do. She loves the set.
