Text on the reverse side:

Although today, linen, wool, silk and cotton yarns are mostly used, early sewers used thread made from leather thongs, gut and grasses. It was in 1844 that English dye and fabric chemist and fabric printer invented the mercerisation process which strengthened cotton threads and giving them a silk-like lustre.
