grain sacks are wonderfully charming and
have a great deal of history to them.
they are quite rare and of course very valuable.
has been collecting these sacks for years. these sacks are around
100 years old and
are hemp linen in a herringbone
pattern. most originals have patches
that only increases its value.
their history definitely gives a sophistication and elegance
that only something handmade and
100 years old can give.
could go in a dining room, kitchen, even a bedroom.
they are simply great.
some of these can be found on ebay:
i just adore these grain bags with the traditional
stripes. i think they would
look great going down a staircase.
put feathers in this grain sack and you have a beautiful pillow
i would love
to start collecting several and make bedding,hand bags or even
are very versatile...
so off i go antiquing ..... trying to find deals
on old grain bags...
i will turn these old sacks into
something modern, and beautiful and each piece
will have a story to tell.
