Aubergine “Spot’d” Neck-Handkerchief

Price: $18.00
Item Number: HAN11
“Spotted” Neckerchiefs appear frequently through out the 18th and on into the 19th c.  They are described in shop advertisements, runaway ads and genre paintings.  Originally made by “tie & dye” method in India, English dyers sought to duplicate the popular style which made for lively patterns at minimal cost.  Our neckerchief is based on an original neckerchief worn by a child admitted to the Foundling Hospital in London in 1759.  The aubergine color is matched to the original neckerchief.  Measuring approximately 35 inches x 39 inches our neck-handkerchiefs are made of hand loomed cotton mul,, hand  tie and dyed and hand finished.
