This is a set of 3 beautiful, antique & rustic towels. Each of these towels is very similar to each other, but they will vary slightly in size, condition etc. Each of these wonderful antique French towels are made from sturdy hemp linen and cotton thread and date to the late 1700's. These likely were once bath towels, since they are relatively large, but now they make great dish or hand towels! These country towels have a little faded red “PP” monogram in one corner of the top edge, so these could be the towels for the "PP" in your life! They are in great condition with only light signs of time and use. The linen fabric is heavy, with a pliable, floppy and smooth, soft feel. The tone is a cool natural hemp off-white tone. Each edge is machine stitched with a hem and the opposite sides are woven selvage. There is a small loop tab for hanging on the center top and bottom edge of each towel, one towel has a different sort of loop for hanging than the other two. Great for an authentic rustic farmhouse look! These towels have many more years of use left in them but the fabric of these pieces could also be lovely for small cutting projects, these textiles make stunning pillows, upholstery fabric, etc. (TT56)

MEASUREMENTS : These towels each measure approximately 24 inches wide by 42 inches long, though they vary slightly in size.

CONDITION : These towels are freshly laundered. One towel has some small pale gray marks that did not wash fully, the others may have a small pale mark or two, but I didn’t see any! Each has a softly worn surface texture and there may be a few tiny holes, some of which have been hand mended at some point in time. Generally excellent aged condition!!
