This wonderful hand woven, antique European hemp linen and cotton towel dates to the late 1700's. This towel is in timeworn condition with typical signs of time and use. This towel still has a nice sturdy feel after all this time. The linen fabric is heavy weigth, and there is a patch near one edge. The tone is a cool natural off-white tone. Each edge is machine stitched with a hem and the top side is woven selvage. Great for an authentic rustic farmhouse look! The fabric of this piece would be lovely for small cutting projects, these textiles make stunning pillows, upholstery fabric, etc. (TT63)
