[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This table runner is cute, simple, and easy to care for. It's a straight checkered stitched that is a very light brown, almost taupe in color with white. It is machine washer friendly on the delicate cycle and dryer friendly on low heat and it took only a few minutes to dry in my dryer. The coloring of this table runner is perfect for the autumn season, especially at Thanksgiving time.
