Pina Linen Hand Embroidered Tea Cloth in a Rose Pattern


This tea cloth is made from Rice linen (sometimes called Pina) and comes from the East where they were competing in the lucrative linen trade. This is the only type of fabric that I know of that is actually stronger when it’s wet than when it’s dry. The spectacular embroidery on these never fails to amaze me. This one is done in a beautiful rose pattern and filled with tiny seed stitches. It measures 34” square. I am throwing in a set of four 11” napkins. They don’t match exactly but they’re close and the lady I bought them from said her mother used them with this tablecloth. All are in perfect condition and ready for use.

Hand washed, air dried and pressed.   Excellent condition. c. 1940 – 50’s
