Authentic vintage feedsack crafted into a pillow. Reddish orange and blue on an off-white medium-weight cotton sack. This sack once held multirich hog feed distributed by Sargent & Company out of Des Moines, Iowa. Lap back for easy removal of the insert. Insert is my blend of poly/feathers/down for a good mix of softness and form. Size is 16" square. Listing is for the pillow with the soldier on it. Her sister pillow shown in pic 1 and pic 5 is listed separately. Dry Clean Only. Thanks for looking!

The sacks that I have left have a few more scars on them than on the pillow shown, which only adds to its charm and is evidence of its authenticigy - these are from the 1940s. Please allow me up to a week to get this made and out to you - thanks!

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..
