French Antique Hemp Linen Grain Sack, Herringbone Weave, Hand Woven
A beautiful heavy weight antique hemp grain sack with a herringbone woven pattern. This is an original French grain sack, not a reproduction.
These old sacks have many uses. They make great pillows. I have one made into a huge pillow the size of the grain sack and it sits at the back of the day bed. They are good for floor cushions or blinds and they are ideal for upholstery projects because they are so sturdy. You can use them as table runners if you split and re-hem the sides.
The sack is in good vintage condition. It is a beautiful oatmeal color. There are 2 or 3 holes on the edges. . The fabric is lovely and thick and very hardwearing, it has a natural slubby texture, there is the odd little thread showing but nothing that detracts. It has the initials B.P. in the centre on one side. They are a violet color and look like they have been put their using a dye
Measuring 45cm x 98cm = 17.75" x 38.6" double if opened up at the sides.
