100% Linen 58 inches wide

Linen cloth was woven of flax fiber in many grades and weaves.  Used in every aspect of living from clothing, to household needs to furnishings to the shroud made for the corpse, linen was so common that a tax was proposed as a source of easy revenue on the coarser sorts being imported into the US towards the end of the 18th century. Woven stripes were a common way of introducing pattern and color into textiles inexpensively. We have found several examples of natural linens with woven stripes usually of white or red in the Foundling collection The weave of this stripe introduces a white yarn into the warp and all natural yarns into the weft creating a subtle pattern in the stripe. This textile is well suited to lower class gowns, petticoats, jackets,waistcoats,  linings, children's clothing and utilitarian needs.
