Just Imported in the Ship Hunter, Capt. Wilson, from LONDON...........a general assortment of EUROPEAN and INDIA GOODS , viz,...........silk handkerchiefs, flower’d linen ditto, cotton ditto..... Boston Evening Post, June 23rd, 1760
In run-away ads, portraits, genre art, advertisements and thefts we find handkerchiefs of many descriptions. Worn by women and men for fashion and practicality through out the 18th century and on in to the 19th century. Our fine cotton handkerchiefs are designed and colored based on the many original printed textiles we have studied over the years. This design is based on simple prints we have studied and the pink is color matched to original printed textiles.
Measuring approximately 34 inches square, our handkerchiefs are made of hand loomed cotton mull, block printed and hand finished.
