Press-Dyed Flag

Views: 5205 Added: 04/10/2009 Updated: 04/10/2009
Press-Dyed Flag A type of flag made by press-dying on wool bunting. Because wool sheds water, such flags were intended for use over an extended period of time. Press-dying was first patented in the U.S. in 1848. Most existing flags made of press-dyed wool (and wool/cotton blends) seem to be limited to the period between the Civil War (1861-65) and WWII (1841-45). Some were tacked to sticks while others had canvas or linen sleeves, sometimes with brass grommets. SEE ALSO sewn flags and parade flags.
