Woven stripes were a common way of introducing pattern and color into textiles inexpensively. Sometimes the looms were warped with the stripes but likewise you found the stripe introduced in the weft yarns. The color could be introduced with a linen yarn or in the case of many Manchester goods, in a cotton yarn.  We have found stripes such as these in the tokens of the Foundlings, and in several Manchester books dating from the 70's and early 80's.  This stripe is well suited to gowns, lady's jackets, petticoats and waistcoats, linings and children's clothing. Please Note: This stripe is horizontal and runs SELVAGE to SELVAGE.
