I got this linen from my ancesters. They're mainly hand towels, table cloths and bed sheets. All of them were handmade on my greatgreatgreatgrandmothers houses, embroidered and finish with antique laces. Just love them! They were passed from generation to genaration as a weedding dowry. Each generation would not only keep it spotless but also add some more made by themselves while they were brides.

This kind of quilts are called " coroa de rei" (king's crown) and were used on special holidays and festive religious days. Only rich or big farmers families had them and they would never be used out of these occasions.
