It was 1996 and I searched for marked linen, and in my search I
discovered an unusual long (80 cm x 200 cm) linen cloth, displaying
the monogram of the owner. I bought it out of curiosity. It turned
out to be an ornamented damask jacquard woven mangle cloth. Still
later I found another one. Their beautiful designed motifs fascinated
me. As my collection grew, I wanted to know more about their history.
The result: a booklet that I published in 2003. "Wash and mangle
smoothly or I'll spank your bum" (in translation) is the first publication
in Dutch on mangling and mangle cloths.

If you want to order my book now (including an English summary) please

Price: 9,- or US $ 11, excluding shipping cost.
