Violet Linen

Linen cloth, such as this Violet 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.

Shades of purple ranging from reddish-purple to bluish-purple were popular from the mid-18th century on into the 19th century. Both dyed and stamped purples appear in extant textiles, dyers advertisements, runaway ads and store ads.
