This pillow was crafted with a vintage feed sack that once held hog supplement distributed by Ubiko Milling Company out of Cincinnati Ohio - Life Guard. Red and blue on an off-white light weight cotton. 18" square with a lap back. Feather/down insert is included. Pic 5 shows its sister pillow that is listed separately. Thanks for looking!

All sacks are properly cleaned before crafting pillows. I use as much of the sack as possible when I am designing and crafting my pillows. Each one shows its age - some more than others - with scars (holes, fading and spots). This is what makes each pillow unique. See pics for details.

Dry Clean Only because the authentic vintage feedsacks were printed with non-permanent ink so that the graphics could be washed out once they were empty. The plain cotton fabric could then be used for household linens, quilts, and clothing. Nothing was wasted - times were tough. A neat piece of American history!

For international buyers - it usually works out better to ship the pillowcovers only, it is much cheaper on the shipping fees. One to two pillowcovers will ship for around $13. If you are interested, please send me a convo and I will set up a private listing.
