This is a set of 3 large, beautiful, antique & rustic towels. Each of these towels is unique and hand woven, so they will vary slightly in size, condition, tone, weave, material etc. Each of these wonderful antique French towels are made from sturdy hemp linen and cotton thread and date to the late 1700's. They are in great condition for their age with gorgeous soft wear and otherwise only light signs of time and use. The linen fabric is heavy, with a pliable, floppy and smooth, feel. One of these towels has a faded PJ monogram to which later someone added a red C, so it is now PJC! The other two towels have very faded LB monograms. The tones are slightly varied, but they are all a cool natural off-white tone. Each edge is machine stitched and the top and bottom edges are woven selvage. There is a small loop tab for hanging on the center top and bottom edge of each towel. 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. (TT53)
