Linen cloth was woven of flax fiber in many grades and weaves and was 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.

Woven stripes were a common way of introducing color and pattern into textiles inexpensively as color could be introduced with a linen yarn or, in the case of many Manchester goods, with a cotton yarn. The stripes themselves could be introduced using the warp yarns but alternatively could be made using the weft yarns.
