Measure your table

Expert Tip
Do you need to store supplies under your rectangular table? If the answer is yes, select a skirt length that only covers 3/4 of the table so you have easy access!

Select Pleat Style

We offer four different pleat types: Bow Tie, Box, Continuous, and Shirred. Each one is available in a wide array of colors ranging from classic black to kelly green and more!

Hook and Loop Clips

If your table skirt has a hook and loop strip, be sure to select clips with a hook and loop front.

How to Choose the Right Skirting Clips

Linen table skirts are held up with skirting clips. These clips come in a variety of styles, and not every clip will work with every table or table skirt. You'll need to select a clip that fits both your table and your table skirt. Be sure to select a clip that matches up with the edge thickness of the table(s) you're using, and to ensure proper fastening, check to see if your table skirt has snaps or a hook and loop lining.
