Handwoven Vintage French Linen Fabric

65.00

It is very difficult for me to pass by vintage French linens. No matter their condition they always seem to come home with me. I adore seeing the maker’s hand in the weave. The worn softness. The tiny additions of embroidery. The repairs that gave new life to an already vintage textile. All point to the history of this linen.

This particular fabric is creamy in color. You can compare it with the two other French linens for sale in the shop in the last photo. It is very soft with a hand stitched edge. There is a tiny faded hand monogramed embroidery. The price reflects areas of discoloration and tiny spots throughout the fabric. There is still plenty to use for a variety of projects. Perhaps with a good scouring, you may find that the textile comes clean. I have not washed it. I’m thinking lemon juice or Oxiclean and then a line dry out in the sun would go a long way to refreshing it. You are getting it straight from a wonderful old farmhouse in Gers, France. It sat for years in an armoire. It’s ready to find its new home and new life.
