Product Options

100% Irish Linen 60 inches wide

The term “checked” or "chek'd"in the 18th century referred to any number of patterns woven or printed that intersected at right angles in order to create squares.  Checked linens were used for a variety of purposes most often found in aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers and linings as well as many household items such as toweling, bed hangings and chair coverings.  We have found checks similar to this in the Foundling collection as well as a Manchester book in the collection of the MET.   The weight of this linen makes it suitable for men’s shirts, aprons, children’s clothing, linings and utilitarian needs.
