Atelier - Heavy Chanvre Coverlet

350.00

Gorgeous coveret*!  A heavy weight chanvre (hemp) sheet from France.  With the center seam, this dates to pre 1890 (until about 1890 or so, looms were much smaller, so a sheet would be seamed together down the middle).  Hand-dyed a dark sea glass green-blue.  This is the only hemp sheet I have found with an elaborate monogram; most have very simple monogram, usually in a corner.  This one has thickly raised, padded embroidery, including chainstitching.  This sheet is very heavy: roughly 5 pounds.  Incredible texture: a buttery, floppy hand. This has a generously-sized length of 120 inches (width 72"), so could be shortened and the cut off portion made into coordinating pillows

*I recommend using these beautiful antique sheets as coverlets.  They are wonderful to lay as an accent atop a duvet cover, bedspread or comforter; or directly over your sheets (depending on the size and your preference).
