Antique Alsace Kelsch Pillow Cover
This antique hemp checked pillow cover comes from the Alsace region of France and is know as 'kelsch' fabric. The front is a rustic navy blue, red and white plaid check and the back is a plain rustic hemp. The entire piece has been hand stitched and is in excellent condition. Originally this type of cover would have been stuffed with feathers or straw. Cotton ties close the cover.
Stuff with a pillow or use the fabric to make smaller cushions. This fabric is also suitable for upholstery.
This type of textile is becoming harder to find and I'm always pleased to come across it. It has such a pleasing texture and rusticity to it.
Cover size : 0.61m wide (24inches ) x 1.06m long (42inches). The cover is open at one end.
Care instructions: Machine wash - 30C. Line dry.
