Coral & White Stripe Linen
Linen cloth, such as this Coral & White Stripe Linen, 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.
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 could be introduced using the warp or the weft yarns.
We have documented wide-striped linen, such as this Coral & White Stripe Linen, in 18th century linings, jackets, children’s gowns and petticoats.
