Blue, Natural, & Drab Olive Checked Linen - $14.00 yd.


( / )


 In the 18th century, the term “checked” referred to any number of woven or printed patterns that intersected at right angles. Checked linens, such as this Blue, natural, & Drab Olive Checked Linen, were used for a variety of purposes, including aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers, and linings, as well as household items, such as toweling, bed hangings, and chair coverings. Descriptions of self-liberated individuals and contemporary writings mention other garments such as a "cross bar gown" or check shortgown or jacket.

Although we have seen similar small checks, we have not seen one with a "green" introduced with the blues.  This check would definitely work well as a Time Traveling textile, suited for 1820's through present day.
