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 12-13 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 elegant cat embroidered on the end is done in stem stitch, for a smooth line that captures tiny details. Each is embroidered completely by hand - not machine - and, although it takes more skill and more time, the results are worth it. To change the picture of a cat or use a dog instead, please send a message and we'll work with you to make your own custom design.
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!
