Netting gloves -- Part of a well dressed woman in the 1900Gloves (bottom of the page) were not only considered stylish but also kept the hands clean, especially when a woman was in public places. She would, for example, wear gloves when dancing with a man. This woman wears net gloves. © 2008 Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, Deerfield, Massachusetts (USA)
Bed Canopy Netting at Lucy (1843-1927) & David HENRY's houseEXTRACT FROM the GREENFIELD GAZETTE & COURIER, June 27, 1908 -- "Original Deerfield Workers Show Skills at Crafts" "... Mrs. David Henry is a worker along very original lines in the craft of netting. She reproduces old styles of work in all their quaintness and freedom from modern over elaboration. She has made an exhaustive study of the methods of dressing the old-fashioned high poster beds, for which there is now something of a fad, and also the copying of the old designs in many of these lines. She uses a cloth for her spreads that is an exact copy of the old hand made dimity of 100 years ago. This is not in the market, but is made especially for her in a Holyoke mill. Then she uses for the decoration of this material a warp yarn that used to be known as candle wicking, the stitches being copies of those made generations ago. Mrs. Henry's work goes all over the country. She made 500 yards of fringes for one woman alone. One of her old tidy patterns she calls the Deerfield pattern. It was used by Mrs. Preserved Smith, and was copied by Mrs. Henry from a specimen owned by Mrs. Mary P. Wells Smith. Mrs. Henry paid two women $50 to do the work on one spread alone. She also makes bureau scarfs, pincushions, old-fashioned handkerchief pockets, etc. In her netting she uses many famous old stitches. ..."

AHU'ULA (1817) - A TECHNIQUE UNIQUE TO THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDSOnly Hawaiians of the highest social rank could wear it. They wore them on ceremonial occasions and in battle, where the folds of feathers and netting provided physical as well as spiritual protection. It was made by attaching thousands of small bundles of feathers to a base of net meshing, a technique unique to the Hawaiian Islands.
