Our Redwork George Shirt is here! This is a classic button down shirt, made from 100% cotton fabric and fully lined with lightweight cotton. Slightly longer than our James shirt, this style is more tailored to a classic Men’s fit, it’s the perfect button down for any gender.
These shirts are a replication of our original Redwork George made from an antique Redwork Quilt Top. Our replicated version is nearly an identical match, just missing the stains!
How to clean:
Machine (or hand wash) on COLD, gentle cycle. Machine Dry on low heat or lay flat to dry. Make sure not to wash on warm or hot because the embroidery color may bleed.
A little history on Redwork:
Redwork became popular between 1885 and 1925. Aside from aesthetics, red embroideries became popular during this time because it was the first colorfast threads that became widely available to the public. Colorfast Turkey red thread was the supreme choice. It cost three times the amount of other red thread but wouldn’t bleed or fade nearly as fast. The stem stitch is the classic stitch for redwork that gives the effect of the artwork being sketched or drawn. You often see the same designs as women would see advertised in magazines and newspapers and buy their patterns from the same catalogues and pattern providers. Redwork was used for anything from quilts to pillows and hand towels or other household linens.
