Blue, Natural, & Drab Olive Checked 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 such as aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers and linings as well as many household items such as toweling, bed hangings and chair coverings. Runaway descriptions and other contemporary writings occasionally call out other garments such as a "cross bar gown" or check shortgown or jacket.
Although we have seen small checks similar to this we have not seen one with a "green" introduced with the blues. This check would definately work well as a Time Traveling textile suited for 1820's through present day.
