Description

Stunning rare French antique homespun hemp bed sheet with natural indigo blue stripes.

In the 19th century, most farms in south west of France were raising their own hemp crops to supply their personal needs in textile fibres. A nomad loom was travelling from farms to farms to allow them transforming the raw fibre in usable fabric pieces. This specific item dates back from that time and is fully handmade with homespun hemp.

Description:
- Period: 19th century
- Monogram: hand stitched "CG", red colour
- Fabric: Homespun Hemp
- Texture: Soft and thick
- Fully handmade central sewing and hems
- Size: 1.88 x 2.60 cm (74 x 102 in)
- Colour: Natural beige, four very nice natural indigo blue stripes
- Weight: 2.60 kg / 5.7 lbs
- Condition: Very good considered its age: only one minor dark mark, one small wear mark and one small darn located a the bottom corner (please check last picture).

Vintage hemp is very desirable, it is soft and the feeling is very hard to replicate by any mechanical process. It can be used as beautiful curtains, tablecloths, clothing, etc… only your imagination is the limit…

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.

Fabric care:
Pure linen or hemp fabric softens the more it is used and washed, is extremely durable and lasts many decades when cared for correctly.
They 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.
