Antique Handwoven Cotton Linen Coverlet
Super soft handwoven fabric was designed at the time as a bedspread. It is lightweight and subtle cream color. It was made on a smaller loom than the commercials ones used today. As such, three pieces of fabric are woven together to get the width. It is the perfect weight and size for a cozy throw or coverlet or even a tablecloth.
I met the granddaughter of the lady that made this. Such an incredible story of how the love and skill of weaving has been handed down generations. She talked about how as a little girl she and her friend would help her neighbor with the linen flax because they wanted the lovely blue flowers to make bouquets.
