The timeless elegance of the color ivory

In tableware, color plays an essential role in creating a unique atmosphere and style. Among the many shades available, ivory stands out as a timeless and elegant choice. We invite you to discover how this subtle nuance can help you set inspiring tables.

The History of the Ivory Color in Tableware

Ivory, this soft and sophisticated shade, gets its name from the naturally white ivory found in elephant and mammoth teeth. For centuries, this color has been associated with purity, grace and nobility. In tableware, the use of ivory dates back to the Renaissance era, when royal court tables were draped with dazzling white tablecloths and napkins, often hemmed with a touch of ivory to add warmth to the whole.

Ivory has continued to be a popular color in tableware throughout history, symbolizing sophistication and refinement. Today, Tomète continues this tradition by offering a range of ivory-colored table linen, which combines classic elegance with contemporary quality.
