This is a pair of French vintage ecru linen natural undyed very large tablecloths still in their original box. The writing on the front reads Toile des Flanders which directly translates as Canvas of Flanders. Toile (French for canvas or linen) is a textile fabric comparable to fine batiste with a cloth weave. Flanders is a region of Northern France. These were bought at a traditional French brocante market and had been stored away for some time so have marks and signs of this storage in an area probably a little damp. They are in the original box although this is worn as shown. These are at least 50 years old, probably older and are completely in tact with no holes or tears. They have staining and marks, only from storage; judging by the condition once unfolded they look barely used and they have not been dyed or washed. These are large pieces of linen suitable not only as tablecloths but also as pieces of fabric for any manner of uses, measuring 220cm x 320cm. This really is a unique find, most vintage linen has been well worn from years of use, this still has its original stiff feel, ready to be brought back to life with a good wash and airing. the writing on the back translates as "Buy Ecru Do your own bleaching! Bleached by you, this pair of sheets (tablecloths) will last much longer after several washes you will obtain a dazzling and natural whiteness that you owe only to yourself, and which will not have altered the solidity of the fabric". this means they are ecru linen which is an unbleached natural fabric, off white in colour. Please bear in mind that these are not washed and are sold in their original condition.
