Some are really very amusing when looked at from today's standpoint.
It goes on to say that true Irish Linen is one of the 'indispensables' of life. So whatever disaster befalls you, standards must not be allowed to slip!! This is an advertisement placed in Life magazine by the Irish Linen Society in the 1920s.
Other adverts from the '20s talk of Linen Damask being "impressively correct" and being "the unerring choice of generations of distinguished hostesses".
By the 1950s the Irish Linen Guild had been set up and an advert dated June 3, 1953 announces Irish Linen Week from June 15 and pronounces Irish Linen to be the Queen of Fabrics.
I have been collecting these for a while now and I think they will look great framed for the walls of my Linen Mill house.
How fantastic that this cloth was promoted as a commodity of the highest quality, not unlike how cotton is advertised today.
