Description
Sheets (2) - Linen blend and raw hemp
Italy - 1930s/1940s

Antique sheets (2) in excellent condition. The first sheet is made in linen blend and dates back to the 40s/50s. It features a monogram and a hand-embroidered honeycomb hem. It measures 220x280 cm. The second one is much older; it is made in raw hemp and it has darker sections because the yarn has not been treated. Simple but unique piece because of the loom-made fabric; it is formed by sheets joined with machine stitches, as it has been more recently tailored. Measure: cm. 158 x 230.
