Paper placemat as an alternative to the tablecloth

Modern food service concepts increasingly rely on a very reduced table top design - as with a paper placemats, this is done not only for aesthetic, but also for practical reasons. The reduced decoration does not distract too much from the essential factors, so that the focus is on the interior design and the culinary offer. Especially for tables with a noticeable wooden surface, paper placemats are a great way not to hide them and still to provide the guest with a hygienic underlay. In contrast to the tablecloth or the table runner, the paper placemat does not cover the entire surface - the general design character is preserved.

Paper placemats - Food service in transition

While it used to be a must-have for sophisticated food service to use fabric tablecloths and fabric napkins for the table top area, it is quite common in the food service sector today to use products made of high quality disposable material. One of the leaders here is Airlaid, because this high-tech material has both feel and visual characteristics of fabric, while as a disposable product it is simply disposed of after use and the table is quickly ready for new guests. That is why Airlaid paper placemats are very popular in the food service and hotel sectors.
