Description

Beautiful Huck embroidery (also known as Swedish weave embroidery) can be found on this attractive set of 1950's towels.

There are two different and distinct designs on each towel. One has been done in shades of lavender, purple and gold while the other is red, federal blue and gold.

What is huck embroidery? "Huck embroidery was a popular technique in the 1930s and 40s, mostly used in hand and dish towels. Huck embroidery is distinguishable from other types of embroidery because the design is worked completely on top of the fabric, so the thread never appears on the back." Huck embroidery is also known as Swedish weave, huckaback darning, Punto Oitinho (Brazilian) and Yugoslavian Weaving.

Measurements~28 1/2" by 18".

Condition This set of towels is decades old and in wonderful condition. I have found one small area of fraying on the bottom edge of one towel (please note the last photo). It looks as though when it was hemmed, the machine missed a tiny area. Otherwise there aren't any holes, spots, stains or rips and the embroidery is intact.

I have laundered, line dried and ironed this set and they will arrive clean, fresh and ready to use or gift.

All linens are securely packaged to ensure a safe journey. Questions are always welcome. Thank-you so much for stopping by!
