This is an antique french hemp sheet made in the early 1900s

At the time this was made the looms were narrow, maximum 100cm. Therefore to make these bedsheets two strips would be sewn together down the middle.
This sheet has a hand sewn seam down the middle.

There is a small pinkish red monogram embroidered on the middle with the letters B * H

The simple embroidery and fact that the sheet is made from hand-spun hemp indicates it came from a modest family.

These beautiful hemp sheets can be used a sheets, bedspreads, tablecloths, curtains or used as fabric to make a multitude of projects.

This piece mesures 195cm wide X 317cm long.

The colour is a rustic white/chalky white, there may be some speckles that appear brownish/yellow when held up to the light. This is normal and due to the fact the fabric is made from a natural fibre. It will whiten if you use a bleaching agent.

There may be signs of wear including thinning of the fabric in places. this is normal and to be expected with a fabric this age. these signs of wear do not constitute defects.

You will receive the sheet freshly laundered.
