16th century canvas work, basically needlepoint, furnishings, like
table carpets, and cushion covers.

I haven't looked earlier than that, but I'd guess that being a fiber
that was more common and perhaps sturdier in this function, it would
have been fairly common in household items.

So much to do and so little attention span to get it done with…
