Modern oilcloth is a vinyl fabric with a 65% polyester 35% cotton scrim backing. Contemporary oilcloth is a direct descendant of the much older canvas cloths treated with linseed oils, hence the name oilcloth. This oilcloth is similar to its outdated ancestor from the 1950s but is new and improved -- it does not crack, peel, or fade with normal usage. Oilcloth has a woven, durable backing and can be sewn!
