Natural, Black, White & Grey Figured Linen
Linen cloth, such as this Natural, Black, White & Grey Figured 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.
Figured linens, linen/cotton, and linen/wool can be found in a variety of pattern books from mid-18th century on. Varying the weave provided texture and the addition of more than one color added interest. We have seen similar patterns to these in last quarter Manchester books.
