That is called a "bundling cloth" not a binding cloth. It was used to separate prospective lovers who were courting or "calling" so that they could share private time but NOT be able to "fool around" before marriage. Course, a rascal like Clabert would have had a scissors in his pocket!

: I figure if I can’t find this answer here, it doesn’t exist anywhere. My friend and I went to see “The Patriot” yesterday, and generally liked it (more on that later), but we both are very confused about something. What is that thing called a “binding cloth” or something similar that the woman sews Gabriel into when he is visiting his girlfriend? In all the books or movies I’v e seen from this period of time, I have never heard of something like this. Any enlightenment would help!!!!
