Utility linen is a term used to describe the fabulous, textured everyday linens that were used on farms and in kitchens across northern Europe in the 19th century: linen and hemp tea towels, coarse linen fabric used for making the sacks that held grain and potatoes, mattress ticking, German “Kelsch” – hand woven linen plaid fabric used to make quilt covers, and rolls of hand woven household linen fabric. Today, these linens have a variety of uses: Monogrammed tea towels can be used for their original purpose, or be made into cushions. Antique, striped grain sack linen makes wonderful table runners or deckchair covers, and the heavier duty linen rolls can even be used for stair runners. The large, indigo-striped grain sacks make wonderful bolsters – great for outdoor furniture in the summer.
