Stories in White

Through our journeys we've seen some incredible monograms on French antique linens. All created by hand, this is truly a lost art replaced with simplified designs executed by machine. Paired with Rauschenberg below, the depth and meaning behind these letters tell a beautiful story and hint at a world beyond the medium.
