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. Among these was linen canvas which was used in abundance for a variety of utilitarian purposes. It also was used for the more hardwearing clothing worn by enslaved people, indentured and tradespeople. Unbleached or "brown" linen would have been the cheapest of these canvases coming straight off the loom.
