This bookmark is made out of 100% Irish linen, for a crisp and unmistakable texture that will only get better with time. Linen is stronger, absorbs more water, can withstand higher heat, and lasts longer than cotton, and the Irish weave the finest linen in the world. These bookmarks are hand-cut to a generous 13 inches long so as to not get lost in your largest books, and are hemmed with a narrow rolled hem to keep bulk down.
The embroidery, done in any color or shade you choose, consists of stem stitch artfully tapered to enhance the shape of each letter for a distinguished look. Each is embroidered completely by hand - not machine - and, although it takes more skill and more time, the results are worth it.
Please - I love to have a personal relationship with each of my customers. Message me with any custom requests, specific color shades, or any other questions you have! I love to know where each piece is going, whether to a new grandfather in Ontario, bridesmaids in Italy, or for a sweetheart here at home!
Please send the two letters you'd like embroidered either in the Notes to Seller box at checkout or in a message.
