Aubergine “Spot’d” Neck-Handkerchief


Price: $22.00
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  Originally made by “tie & dye” method in India, English dyers sought to duplicate the popular style which made for lively patterns at minimal cost.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.  Please note that our "tie" & "dye" handkderchiefs are made in the traditional method and may require additional dye fixing.  We recommend a dye fixative such as Retayne, Rit or Dharma's dye fixative.  You can also use 1/2 cut salt and 2 teaspoons of vinegar to help set the dye.  Always wash our handkerchiefs by hand using cold water and a small amount of mild detergent.
