Antique Hemp

Regular price $31.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

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.
