Rustic. Rural.

Americana in the late 19th century manner.

Well made in America. Built to last.
Finite run small batch. Very last one!

Real deal antique fabric, not 'vintage look' repro import.

Dark indigo blue floral pocket square handcrafted from authentic late 19th-early 20th century lightweight calico cotton that has never been used.

Gender neutral, small scale off-white print w/ simple stylized flowers, clearly inspired by Japonisme. Calicoes like this were in production from the 1870s-early 1900s, produced in copious quantities & used for everyday clothing, workwear, bandanas and quilts. Finding this authentic, pristine antique fabric is a rarity these days.

All four sides have time/labor intensive, narrow hand rolled hem w/ off-white, high thread count top stitching. Hand dyed, hand printed tag made from vintage, American mfg. cotton tape.

Original, very narrow loomed late 1800s-to early 1900s fabric (~26"w), most likely mfg. in one of the many New England textile mills in their heyday.

Though still strong, this venerable 100 yr+ fabric deserves to be treated with a little more regard than younger vintage fabrics. Rest assured, it has years to go.

~13" x 13"

Pre-washed once (hot H20/heavy duty cycle) to ensure integrity, cleanliness and minimize shrinkage.

Conscientious craftsmanship for durability.

CARE: Hand washing is best & most highly recommended. Cold/warm H2O. A drop of mild shampoo does the trick; rinse well. No bleaching agents. Line dry. Steam iron cotton, as needed.
