A gorgeous antique French linen vandage cloth dating to circa 1900. I've recently dyed this cloth a wonderful dark blue gray tone with a hint of green. This cloth is a hand woven linen and cotton mix with a heavy weight and smooth, soft and floppy feel! This piece has a wonderful surface texture from the natural fibers. There decorative woven bands off to either side of center. This cloth would have been draped on a vandage table for wine tastings in the aging cellar in the Cognac region of France. This piece took the dye unevenly in places. I love this mottled or textured look, however this cloth would not be right for someone looking for a very consistent solid toned dyed sheet. Very heavy weight, durable and beautiful. Wonderful used for the fabric for curtains, upholstery, pillows, towels, etc! ( TT18 ) 

Measurements:  This lovely textile measures about 41.5 inches by 67.5 inches.

CONDITION : This textile is freshly laundered and ready to use. Please expect some large, uneven darker blotches from the dye and unevenly dyed surface.  Please note that because this cloth was recently dyed, it should be washed on it's own for the first few washes. It can be machine washed and tumbled dry, over and over and over and the texture just gets even softer! I like to add fabric softener to the final rinse. A gorgeous textile!
