Printed textiles were common in all social levels in the 18th century.  England was a major manufacturer and printer throughout the 18th century as well as India where they derived many of their print patterns from.  In the colonies India cotton and English goods of linen and cotton were both worn.  One and two color prints of crude to complex designs were all within the reach of most social classes.  Our pattern is based on our extensive research of 18th century printed textiles, drawing strongly from collections such as the tokens of the Foundling Museum & the pieced bed hangings from the V & A.  The spotted background and sprigged motif are common motifs found in the 2nd half of the 18th century on in to the early 19th century.  This pattern is inspired by a token left for a  boy in 1759.  Purple was a common color found in many of the prints we researched, from one, to two to multi color.  This purple is color matched from our printed textile research. Our cotton is lightweight, matched in weight to a piece of India cotton in the Foundling collection and is well suited to Lady’s gowns, summer jackets & petticoats, shortgowns and bedgowns, trims, linings, men’s summer wrappers & children’s clothing.
