A vintage 1950s “métis” sheet. This was the name given to fabric that was a 50/50 blend of cotton and linen.
Considered more hardwearing and utilitarian than pure linen it was the preferred bedding textile in the 40/50s
This is “crème métis” which describes the creamy white colour. Métis is more usually straw colour.
Heavy weight relatively stiff fabric. It is the type of fabric I use to make aprons.
Beautiful used as intended on a bed, as a throw, curtains, table cloth or as fabric to make something from
It measures 200cm x 310cm
