Natural & White Medium Weight Checked Linen

Linen cloth, such as this Natural & White Medium Weight Checked 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 in order to create squares.  Checked linens were used for a variety of purposes.  Runaway descriptions and other contemporary writings occasionally make reference to a check or cross bar gown  or petticoat.
