Monograms and Antique Linens Special Preview

Plying gentle curves and sweeping lines with linen thread, women centuries ago marked treasured household linens as a means of identification and a matter of pride. Today, using similar techniques, by hand or by machine, women choose monogramming as a means of self-expression to mark clothing, bed linens, towels, and other textiles. Three letters convey one’s identity in swoops and swirls.

The passion for beautiful antique linens and the use of monograms is explored within these pages through the historical accounts of merchants who have catalogued them, collectors who research them, and artisans who design them.
