Blue, Green, & Brown Crossbar Lightweight 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 including aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers, and linings, as well as many household items such as toweling, bed hangings, and chair coverings.  Descriptions of self-liberated individuals and other contemporary writings occasionally call out other garments such as a "cross bar gown" or check shortgown or jacket.

The multi-toned yarns in this linen gives it a more contemporary look.  For that reason we feel this fabric is better suited for later periods.
