Item details

Very old, unused stock, these wonderful little labels came from high in the Bavarian Alps. You will receive 12 labels (in a continuous strip) of the monogram of your choice. The styles may vary, but they will all be red on white. Some are German Gothic. Some are block type. Choose from the dropdown list above to see what initials I have right now. Only a few have more than one set available. If you don't see what you're looking for, please send me a convo. I have many more to list!

These have been used in Europe for generations to mark clothing and linens for the laundry. They are woven of a very fine white cotton and embroidered in red. They are intended to be stitched onto the garment and they are completely washable.

Most individual labels measure approximately 1 1/4" by 3/4" (28mm x 17mm). Individual labels may vary. These have been washed and pressed, but because of their vintage nature they may retain small signs of yellowing or staining.

These would be perfect to add to art quilts, to vintage clothing, to baby blankets, and more. Use them in your mixed media artwork or add them to your collection of vintage sewing accessories.

Packaged in a glassine envelope.


FAQs

I know it can be time consuming to select exactly the right items, so I'm happy to hold items for you for 24 hours. Just send me a convo and let me know the item numbers (four digit numbers at the end of the item name). I'll deactivate the items so that no one accidentally purchases them. When you're ready to purchase, let me know and I'll reactivate with your name in the title. If I haven't heard back from you in a day or so, I'll check back in with you to make sure you still want to purchase them before I reactivate them.

No way! We consider our little farm a fresh air factory, so there's no smoking allowed anywhere on our property, unless of course it's something on the grill. Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing if the original owners of vintage items felt the same though. Typically, most items I sell go thru a thorough cleaning process, especially linens. Additionally, I have no control over the storage conditions with the shipping providers after they leave my care.

Happy to do a custom lot for you. Just let me know the colors or the themes you're looking for.

Most linens respond to a long soak in a gentle cleanser. I use everything from OxiClean or Biz to washing soda and borax. For stains, I usually pretreat with a Fels Naptha bar. The best whitener is the sun.

In order to keep the cost minimal, I do not take the time to spot treat or soak or hang on the clothesline for sun exposure. They get a quick wash and iron. They're folded & tied with a ribbon & then placed inside a polypropylene resealable bag. Some of the hankies may have small, faint storage marks that will likely come out in a good soak. Typically, the flaws in the hankies will be unnoticeable. I try to sort out the ones that have anything larger than a pin hole, but one may occasionally slip by me. I try to always do a mixture of perfect with not-so-perfect. For me, the imperfect ones are more interesting. They've had a life! And they sometimes have the scars to prove it!
