Rose Linen - $14.00 yd.
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.
This color is identical to the lining of a French silk brocaded sack gown, dating from 1775 in the collection of LACMA.
