~~~~~~~~~~Welcome to my etsy shop ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well this was an exciting find! Antique French hemp and linen fabric dating from around 1900 but never used. This would have been intended for use as a sheet and would have been joined to another piece. All the early linens are joined at the centre with a wonderful hand stitched seam.

The fabric is a warm biscuity wheaty colour - as always the camera has bleached out the colour a little. It is very densely woven and strong but not too thick. Just perfect for a curtain, blind, cushion or for any number of projects. I love to put these antique pieces to use; it's sad that this has been hiding away in an armoire for 100 years or so and never had an opportunity to shine!

As this is an unused piece I have not laundered it. Light storage marks throughout, mostly on the outside folds - these will come out with no problem at all. Soak and wash before use - if you'd like any info regarding care of antique linens, please get in touch.

I have three pieces in total, this listing is for one piece.

Approx dimensions: 31 inches wide (79 cm), selvedge to selvedge and 95 inches long (243 cm)

Weight: 650 grams

An amazing find from an armoire that was heaped with wonderful treasures at a farmhouse deep in the Burgundy countryside.

Such possibilities - what would you create?
