Description

Beautiful French antique linen, made with good quality of heavy linen. This makes it perfect for summer time but also many types of use such as curtain, tablecloth, etc...

Description:
- Period: Early 20th century
- Fabric: Pure linen
- Texture: medium thickness, soft and heavy linen
- Monogram: BL
- Characteristics: Handmade embroideries with three complex ladders, return 31.5 inches on each side
- Size: 225cm x 300 cm / 88.5 in x 118 in
- Colour: White
- Weight: 1.9 kg / 4.2 lbs
- Condition: Perfect (no stains, no holes, no marks)

The bedsheet is delivered inside a moisture proof protective sleeve packed in solid carton box, it is carefully washed and ironed: fully ready to use. I insist this is NOT a recent production of any kind, I sell only fully genuine antiques.

Custom dyeing:
All white bedsheets on sale can be professionally custom dyed on request in normally just a few days in any colour. Do not hesitate to contact me for more details and price quotation.

A bit of history:
Linen is a very ancient extraordinary natural fibre used by mankind for thousands of years with many benefits compared to cotton:
- Very durable fibre, a lot stronger than cotton;
- Hypo-allergenic, highly breathable and high moisture absorbency;
- Environmentally friendly: less water and chemicals are required for cultivation.

Pure linen embroidered bedsheets with monograms are a very old French tradition (dating from mid-18th century) and were luxury products passed on from generation to generation as inheritance and wedding endows. Depending on the owner wealth, monograms and embroideries could be very complex with highly technical work, crowns and marks of social levels and everything was painstakingly handmade.
Due to bed sizes at that time, their typical measurements are 220-240 cm (87-95 in) wide by 300cm (118 in) length. Wider bedsheets are extremely rare because only high-rank people could afford bigger beds.

Vintage linen is very desirable, it is soft and the feeling is very hard to replicate by any mechanical process. Their classic measurements make them appropriate for many bed sizes around the world or they can also be alternatively used as beautiful curtains, tablecloths, clothing, etc… only your imagination is the limit…

Fabric care:
Pure linen fabric softens the more it is used and washed, is extremely durable and lasts many decades when cared for correctly.
Linen can be machine washed easily with pure soap or gentle detergents, never use chlorine bleaches to avoid damage to the fibre and always separate white from colours. Dyed bedlinen must be preferably washed alone the first time.
Use your washing line or use a gentle low heat tumble dryer but always remove while your linen bedlinen is still slightly damp so it does not get crumpled too much.
