Vintage European Grain Sack Pillow

340.00

When the early 1800s farmer transported sugar, flour, and grain to market, he went about it in an elegant way—woven from homespun hemp, the handcrafted "Grain Sack" not only carried goods to market but the pride of the farm evidenced in vividly colored stripping and, often, embroidered initials signifying the family name. This commonplace and simple form of branding in the late 1800's has, today, become a coveted treasure.

Our pillows are made from the most interesting hand stitched sacks from Eastern Europe. The sacks are typically stained and dirty from their hundreds-of-years journey. The cleaning of each is a painstaking process which successfully removes most of the stains. Because the hot-wash process has already been performed, we invite you to re-wash your pillow case without fear of shrinking or bleeding.

We love the delicate pumpkin stripping on the Sanctuary Living Collection.
Each pillow is already stuffed with a feather/down insert...you are welcome!

Treasured. Storied. Adored. 

 DIMENSIONS: 22" w x 22" h x 6" d
