Design Georg Jensen Damask

The damask tablecloth in the unique H. C. Andersen design is saturated with wonderfully narrated enjoyment and stands out as a poetic as well as an elegant feature in the table setting.

Hans Christian Andersen is famous for his contribution to world literature, but he was also a talented paper cut artist. Architect and designer Knud V. Engelhardt began working on the design of Hans Christian Andersen’s paper cut in the 1920s. A design that Inger Blegvad Klint carried on after his death in 1931 and which was completed by Georg Jensen Damask for launch for the first time in 1951. Since then, the tablecloth has undergone several adjustments and modifications and was last relaunched in 2004.
The motifs are woven into the tablecloth to create a multifaceted story, where the Ugly Duckling can be found side by side with other memorable tales and beautiful paper cuts. Our collaboration with the Danish Royal Family began in 1952 with the Hans Christian ANDERSEN tablecloth, when Queen Ingrid placed her first of many orders for the Royal Danish Family.

Hans Christian ANDERSEN tablecloth with its beautiful Gardenia colour combination is a genuine classic in our collection. It was re-launched in the 1990s and has brought great pleasure to many children and adults at birthdays and numerous other special occasions. Matching napkins, woven in linen complete the expression.

NOTICE! The measures are measures after washing.

The H.C. ANDERSEN is also available as napkins.

About Tablecloths:
  • 100% Egyptian cotton - double-twined and combed.

  • Wash at 60 °C. White damask products can be washed at 95 °C.

Good advice
  • Unfold product before washing and avoid overfilling the washing machine.

  • Stretch the product while wet.

  • We recommend line-drying, it gives a smoother result and it is better for the environment.

  • Always observe the washing instructions provided on the product. Wash at 60°C opens the cotton yarns and it becomes clean. Many people think that washing the tablecloth at 40 °C will make the product last longer, but the products are made for high temperature.

  • Choose tablecloth size: We recommend 20 to 30 cm drop to get the most beautiful look. For example if you have a table of 1 x 2 m vi recommend that the size of the tablecloth is 140 x 240 cm.

    About Damask

    Georg Jensen Damask is a culture bearer within Danish design tradition as well as the history of craft. Our history is built on proud weaving traditions since 1756, but members of the family behind Georg Jensen Damask have been weavers all the way back to the 1500s.  The weaving is based on a classic design with a focus on functionality and quality both back then and today.

    Throughout times we have worked together with some of the most acknowledged weavers, designers and architects, for example Arne Jacobsen, Cecilie Manz, Andreas Engesvik, Margrethe Odgaard and Nanna Ditzel. Furthermore, we have been involved in several projects with the Royal Danish Court and we are proud to call ourselves Purveyor to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark.
