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 hand or dishtowels are made from sturdy hemp linen and date to the 1820's. These country towels have a little faded red “MM” monogram on the center top edge, so this could be the towel for the "MM" 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, almost soft feel. The tone is a cool natural hemp tone. Each edge is machine stitched with a hem and the top side is selvage. There is a small loop tab for hanging on the center top 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. (TT50)

MEASUREMENTS : These towels each measure approximately 31 to 36 inches wide by 21.5 inches long.

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! Generally excellent aged condition!!
