hmmm.. On the Flip side for cotton being a "Luxury" Item or "Common"
Item......... like with Pearls for the Church and Royalty. TO be givcen
as gifts because of their value in society... ( the Ultimate I have money
Bling) .. Could Cotton not be treated the same way???? if it was expensive
why not embroider a napkin for a Beloved or Really close friend?...or as
part of the Dowry.... etc
... just bringing up ideas.... I really do not know about this subject and
am interested in learning more....
does anyone really know how well cotton holds up over 100's of years???? If
badly or it does not... then could that also be a factor in the is Cotton
period debate????? If It hols up well then what??? I am talking about
Period Cotton which I guess wahs manufactures a little different then
If It was common that would also explain the surprise Again. I do not
know.. much about this at all. However I can see both points.. and I am most
definately going to look into that book!!!!
You are the First person who has offered another view on cotton! thank
you... It getting me thinking.. maybe Cotton was available in italy and
widely used Since "Italy" had many trade ports! how do we not know there
was a import/export tax or "Duty" of somekind that the rest of europe was
unwilling/unable to pay.....Or Someone Tring to Make a Quick buck along the
I have a friend who sends any material, clothing , books, Dance Belts she
wants to her aunts in Detroit because she claims she has been "stung" with a
Duty tax to have these items shipped here to Windsor. ... for the Item
coming into Canada.... Even small Items like embriudery floss she
ordered... . She insists they can charge whatever they want at the border
for Duty and at times has paid twice what she originally paid for the Item
including shipping?????..... I have heard many other "Horror" stories
like that as well.. so could that have been a factor???? Maybe wabbit..
Maybe.... Who knows????
Okay now you have me tinking about all kinds of stuff.... Hubby says "Thanks
a lot"... LOL...... I think its cause he smelled something Burning... LOL
Now Hmmmmmm Off to see If I can find that book.......
One who is confused about Cotton in Period.....
