'The Milkmaid' or in Dutch 'Het melkmeisje' was painted by Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) around 1658. This oil on canvas painting depicts a young milkmaid, a woman who milks cows and makes dairy products from the milk, pouring that milk into an earthenware container. She's wearing a blue apron to protect her clothes, and has her sleeves rolled up. It is part of the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
The pocket squares are printed in Macclesfield, a town in England with a history of over 300 years of silk production and printing.
