Rated 1 out of 5 by katie1976 Very poor, little more than a rag.
After reading the reviews I was a little reluctant to buy this product, but felt assured the problems with creasing and quality had been sorted upon checking the replies by John Lewis CS on these reviews.
Don't be fooled, it is still the same quality JL were selling before, there a fabric flaws all over this product and once washed it is rendered useless due to the creases that DO NOT IRON out. It has been used once and will not be used again, it is too embarassing.
Napkins are the same, waste of money!

Product failed to meet expectations was used only once and then washed and could not be used again as creasing proved impossible to iron out.

It is never easy to find a tablecloth to fit our table. This is ideal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MarkyD Colour scheme gives false impression!
We recently bought the 'Mocha' coloured table cloth in this range and so far so good -yet to wash & attempt to iron- but this is more about how the colours appear on this site. Both the Mocha and Putty ones look different in the flesh as to how they look on this site!
In my opinion both look a bit grey and dull when the Mocha one actually looks a kind of stoney brown colour and the Putty one is more of a beige in the flesh.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lease Very disappointed
I bought this tablecloth and matching napkins to be used on our dining table for both Christmas Day and the New Years Eve dinner party we were hosting. The looked very white and crisp enough on arrival, but after washing they were impossible to iron! I spent over an hour on the table cloth alone and it looked awful. Unfortunately, as it only arrived a few days before Christmas I had to put up with it as there was no time to go shopping for another. After Chistmas I washed them again in preparation for NYE, and even though I tried ironing them damp from the washing machine, again it took forever to achieve a poor result. I returned to store and received a full refund. Just not the quality that I would expect from John Lewis.

After several washes the 180 X 140 table cloth has now shrunk to 165 X 135. Fortunately the cloth still fits the table, but for how long!. We have no problems ironing with a steam generator iron. However, I notice one stain still persists despite using a bio powder and a stain remover. On the positive side the colour (red) still looks good and there is a good range of sizes available. Despite my negative comments, we will purchase the largest size available, for use when our table is extended as for the size, colour and price etc there is no other supplier available.

ONE STAR IS TOO GENEROUS! There is nothing positive to say, really wish I'd taken the advice of the other reviewers but needed the cloths urgently so gave them a go - bad move! On opening them the smell was terrible, a musty mouldy smell. There were black marks on the cloths. Other reviewers had mentioned that they shrink so I decided to iron them without washing, this didn't work so I washed them and tried to iron them whilst damp still impossible to iron. Washing had shrunk them, the larger one barely covered the table end to end. Washing after use was just as disappointing as the stains would not come out. Steptoe & Son would have been proud of my Boxing Day table I was simply ashamed - these cloths are only fit for the bin.
