Dark earthy browns tinged with red like SHOPPING BAG are a defining feature of British, 19th century landscape painter John Constable, lending depth and weight to his brooding, dramatic scenes.

A key figure in the British Romanticist school, Constable painted the British landscape as a wild, barren and untamable place, where overgrown plants tangle together and fall into dark, mysterious pools of water, and colossal trees stretch out over the sky with long branches, carrying with them the great weight of their history. Browns were therefore an essential tool in his arsenal for conveying fertile soil, brittle branches and crumbling bark, and he spent hours painting in the great outdoors in order to capture their rich and abundant hues.

At a medium weight of 5.3 ounces this 58 inch wide 100% linen is versatile enough to be referred to as an All Purpose or Do it All linen. With its smooth look and tighter weave, this linen is neither sheer or heavy, but just the right in-between weight you will need for a variety of projects.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).

The color appears as a shade of purple on my computer screen. But I would have assumed that 'shopping bag' means it's a shade of brown. Can you help clarify what family of color this item belongs to?

It is a beautiful shade of brown that has a slight red undertone that in certain light or monitors might show as a purple hue.
