Authentic vintage grainsack crafted into a pillow cover. Heavy cotton with faded red graphics on the front - back is plain. This king size bolster style has a zip on one end. It once held sugar for the American Crystal Sugar Company. One of the biggest sugar sacks I have seen. It holds a king size bed pillow - pillow not included. Size is 19" x 36". Feather pillows work best as they form to the shape. I have two queen size feather pillows stuffed into it. One-of-a-kind. It has some marks and several frayed holes unpatched -they are small. Thanks for looking!

This is the last of these large sugar sacks that I have. This pillow has some stitching near one corner from the mill and is a bit brighter and cleaner than the one shown. It's ready to ship.

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, patches and/or spots). This only adds to the charm of each pillow - making each one unique.

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!
