$50.00 USD

early twentieth century
62 1/2" x 14 1/4", 159 cm x 36 cm

This is length of woven hemp cloth which might have been used as a kaya or mosquito netting. Usually mosquito netting is woven in an open style but this one is more densely woven.

The color is a faded and worn warm blue-green, the tone of it has softened to a kind of blue-grey.

There is surface abrasion from decades of use and there are two patches and one small hole, all of which are shown here.

The patching being nicely done and the good quality of this old hemp weaving make this a desirable length of old cloth.
