This beautiful grain sack pillow is made from antique, hand-woven hemp linen and antique/vintage French ticking. The back is also made from antique, hand-woven European linen.

I bought this ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, BLACK AND CARAMEL striped fabric several years ago. It is my favorite grain sack fabric - ever - I could not part with it until I realized that it does not fit my personal color scheme. So this is the very last of this scrumptious roll. I will also list one pillow that was made from similar striped fabric, caramel and dark navy.

I have other grain sacks in just caramel colored stripes and would be happy to make matching custom pillows for you.

All of my linen is between 80 and 130 years old and made from flax and hemp, which were grown by European farmers who wove the material by hand. The women weavers of former times spent their evenings weaving this amazing linen, often working only by candlelight. A weaver would work four to six hours to produce just 60 centimeters (24 inches) of this linen.

FEATURES

- Size - Insert is 16x20 inches, actual pillow a little smaller
- Embroidery - custom French monogram
- Pillow insert - 90% feathers, 10% down
- Zipper - hidden

When I made my first pillows, I hoped to convey to my children a sense of history and their European heritage. I also wanted my home to connect with nature by using natural materials, instead of man-made fibers. I can hardly tell you how much we have enjoyed pillows made of this beautiful linen! Now my children are parents, and they love having these pillows for their children.

The linen is super tough and washes easily, so please use it! Let your children tumble around on the floor with your pillows. They will only get softer and more beautiful with age.
