Just Imported in the Ship Hunter, Capt. Wilson, from LONDON...........a general assortment of EUROPEAN and INDIA GOODS , viz, handkerchiefs, flower’d linen ditto, cotton ditto.....  Boston Evening Post, June 23rd, 1760

In run-away ads, portraits, genre art, advertisements and theft reports, we find handkerchiefs of many descriptions, such as our Red & Black Handkerchief. They were worn by women and men for fashion and practicality throughout the 18th century and into the 19th century. 

The coloring and patterning of this handkerchief is based on a large number of prints we studied in the 18th c. textile tokens of the Foundling Hospital, London, as well as handkerchiefs found in the collection of the Cooper Hewitt Museum.  

Our Red & Black Handkerchief:

  • Measures approximately 34 inches square.
  • 100% hand loomed cotton mull.
  • Hand printed and hand finished.
