One of the things that I have tried to highlight when describing the towels is the use of the paper tag. There is a longer discussion on the markings of the towels either on the face of the towel or on the back. For another day.

However, I think almost uniformly, there was also a paper tag which was consistent in size and color. There are numerous examples throughout the galleries. It is 2 inches long and 1 inch wide. Then there are several variations. On the left side of all variations the tag is white with an orange circle and the iconic Vera signature in the circle. On one variation, the tag on the right side is black and says “kitchen fashion originals” with “all linen” on the side. Another variation says “all belgian linen”.

The tags were glued on with not too sticky kind of a glue. So they didn’t leave residue. That is good, great actually. However, they fall off easily after a mere half century or so and then a brand new towel doesn’t have the tag.

Because of varying but almost universally high quality of the linen, you can tell when a towel has not been laundered. However, for collecting, it is generally considered that the tag assures it is new and unused. I have some beauties that I KNOW have not been used but don’t have tag. So they are not marked as tagged in the collection.
