ANTIQUE FRENCH HAND LOOMED LINEN GRAINSACK PILLOW

THIS PILLOW IS A WARM BEIGE, WITH A NAVY BLUE STRIPE, TEXTURED BUT SOFT TO TOUCH

IT IS BACKED WITH VINTAGE/ANTIQUE FRENCH MATTRESS TICKING IN BLUE STRIPE, VARYING FROM PALE TO A DENIM BLUE COLOR AND OFF WHITE.

THE TICKING WILL HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM A MATTRESS, WASHED AND STORED.

THIS TICKING INCLUDES ONE OR TWO OLD FEATHERS THAT HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT TO REMOVE, BUT I THINK THIS ADDS TO ITS AUTHENTICITY.

SIMPLE STYLE, SOFT TO TOUCH AND WILL COMPLIMENT A RANGE OF OTHER PILLOWS

SIZE 24" BY 14"

QUALITY PAD INCLUDED

I will always combine shipping and if the costs are less
than I anticipate I will refund the difference


HISTORICALLY, LINEN GRAIN SACKS WERE PRODUCED ON THE FARM USING TRADITIONAL METHODS

AN AREA OF LAND WOULD BE SET ASIDE FOR GROWING HEMP OR FLAX

IT WOULD BE HARVESTED, SOAKED TO LOOSEN THE FIBERS, CLEANED AND THEN SPUN INTO THREAD

THESE THEN WOULD HAVE BEEN PATIENTLY HANDWOVEN AND MADE UP BY HAND

TO INDICATE WHICH FARM THEY COME FROM THESE SACKS WERE OFTEN WOVEN WITH COLOURED STRIPES,

RED, BLUE, INDIGO, BROWN, ROSE, CARAMEL ................



TO ENSURE THE FARMER GOT HIS OWN SACKS BACK FROM THE MILL

THE LADIES WOULD OFTEN HAND EMBROIDER THEIR INITIALS ON THEM



THE SACKS I USE ALL FOUND HERE IN FRANCE ALL AT LEAST 80 TO 100 YEARS OLD



PERFECT FOR YOUR COUNTRY STYLED HOME
