Vintage French Metis Linen Sheet or Tablecloth
A wonderfully tactile French Metis Linen Sheet dating from the early 20th Century. Lovely bright white and thick with some slubs in the weav.
Metis is the traditional French sheeting fabric and is a mix of linen and other yarns such as cotton, hemp or less commonly nettle.
In very good condition, nice and thick throughout, some small grey marks and some tiny rust spots from being stored in an armoire for decades. It was very grubby when I acquired the sheet, I have washed it once and many of the marks have disappeared, the remainder would very likely come out with further laundering.
These sheets can be used in many ways, they make lovely throws, tablecloths, curtains and are often used for upholstery and cushions.
