This stocking is made from antique, handwoven European grain sack linen. The ruffles are also fashioned from antique, handwoven linen fastened below a cuff made from jute webbing. The hanging loop is made from an antique grain sack tie, and the top is finished with a hand sewn patch.
The antique grain sack linen is 90 - 140 years old and made from flax and hemp, grown by European farmers who wove the material by hand. The stripe patterns were woven in to identify the farmer's grain sacks when they took their grain to the local mill. Women weavers spent their evenings weaving this amazing linen. It took about one night to weave a 24-inch length of linen approximately 20 inches wide.
