A piece of old hemp cloth approx 36cm x 130cm. This was sold to me as a bolt of hemp or possibly ramie - but I think it's hemp. It has a wonderful rustic character - with some roughness in the weave but no holes or stains. The colour is a bit darker -more straw colour - than it looks in the photos. I'm not sure what it was originally used for. Possibly mosquito netting (kaya) but it's a bit heavier weight than kaya. Possibly bags or aprons. Early 20th century
It would be an amazing base for a table runner and would also be wonderful for kogin embroidery. I have more in the shop - please contact me if you'd like a longer piece.
