Irish Stitch Wallpocket
As the name suggests, these decorative envelopes are intended to hang on the wall for the purpose of holding lightweight articles such as documents. They are a useful and attractive period solution for holding letters, notes, pictures, etc. Because the backs are made of good rag paper they are surprisingly sturdy, as long as you don’t over stuff them! Not all wallpockets were made of needlework, we also offer an example made of wool broadcloth.
