The mittens are made from antique, handwoven European grain sack linen. The fabric is 90 - 140 years old and made from flax and hemp, grown by European farmers who wove the material by hand. Some of the trees feature linen with stripe patterns that 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.
The backs of the mittens are made from vintage mangle cloth, a pure linen fabric from Germany about 50 - 80 years old.
