White Herringbone Linen
Linen cloth, such as this White Herringbone 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 a sense of texture and the addition of more then one color added interest. We have seen similar patterns such as these in last quarter Manchester books.
