Time Traveling

Blue, Green & Brown "Checked" Light Weight Linen - $14.00 yd.



The term "checked" in the 18th century referred to any number of patterns woven or printed that intersected at right angles. Checked linens were used for a variety of purposes such as aprons, shirts, children's clothing, trousers and linings as well as many household items such as toweling, bed hangings and chair coverings. Runaway descriptions and other contemporary writings occasionally call out other garments such as a "cross bar gown" or check shortgown or jacket.

  • The pattern of this check is something we have seen however the color combination and variation of colored threads is not.  We feel that this is best suited for later period garments from mid 19th century onward.
