Sheet and shirt (2) - raw hemp and raw linen

Description
Sheet and shirt (2) - raw hemp and raw linen
Italy - 1930s/1940s

Beautiful and antique, complete with double bed sheet and shirt. The untreated hemp sheet was not bleached and is a sturdy fabric that’s soft to the touch because it’s natural. It has a large hem and monogram, all hand-embroidered. The natural linen shirt was made on loom and is of medium size. Sleeves and neckline are hand embroidered in blanket stitch. In excellent condition, the sheet shows some stains due to time that will disappear after a wash.
