Indigo “Spot’d” Neck-Handkerchief


Price: $18.00
Item Number: HAN12
“Spotted” handkerchiefs 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 Originally made by “tie & dye” method in India, English dyers sought to duplicate the popular style which made for lively patterns at minimal cost.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 handkerchief is based on an original handkerchief worn by a child admitted to the Foundling Hospital in London in 1759. The indigo color is matched to a number of indigos we color matched in the Foundling Hospital collection of textile tokens.   Measuring approximately 34 inches square, our neck-handkerchiefs are made of hand loomed cotton mul,, hand  tie and dyed and hand finished.
