Authentic vintage grainsack crafted into a pillow cover. Heavy cotton with red graphics. This king size bolster style has a zip on one end. In 1942 it was the property of the Utah-Idaho Sugar Company in Idaho Falls. One of the biggest sugar sacks I have seen. It holds a king size bed pillow - pillow not included. Size is 20.5" 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 is in great shape - just a small hole towards one corner. 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, 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!

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.
