Natural & Black Check Linen

Linen cloth, such as this Natural & Black Check 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.

In the 18th century,the term “checked” referred to woven or printed patterns that intersected at right angles. Checked linens were used for a variety of purposes including aprons, shirts, children’s clothing, trousers, linings, and many household items such as toweling, bed hangings, and chair coverings. Descriptions of self-liberated individuals and other contemporary writings call out other garments such as a "cross bar gown" or check shortgown or jacket.
