Natural & Pink Herringbone Linen "Ticking" - $16.00 yd.


( / )


Tickings or “ticken” encompassed a group of twill woven linens. It was woven both as a plain twill and, in the case of most of the examples we have studied, a herringbone weave. Herringbone was any textile woven in a zigzag pattern resembling the bones of a herring. They were woven in all pattern widths from very narrow to quite wide. Ticking was woven for household use as well as clothing and even shoes. Stays surviving in the collection of Dunvegan Castle, Scotland are covered in ticking and purported to have been owned by Flora McDonald with a date of 1770-80.
