Authentic Grain Sack Home Decor from the heart of Transylvania

Grain sacks were originally produced about 100 years ago on European farms, to bring grains to the mill. Each sack was hand woven from hemp with a distinctive pattern of strips showing which farm it belonged to, sometimes with a hand stitched monogram. The reason for the unique family farm markings were because the farmers wanted to be able to identify their own sacks when transporting flour and grain to the market. When the grain came back from the mill, the unique markings ensured the sacks were returned to their rightful owner.

The average age of these textiles is 100 years and they were naturally home grown, home retted (in local lakes and ponds) and woven by hand.
These textiles are being re-cycled today and showing off the extreme craftsmanship of past generations!
Yet another feature that makes these textiles extremely eco-friendly is their durability. These textiles were designed to endure generations of constant use and will have an extremely long life. The timeless beauty of this linen and their extraordinary quality make these textiles the perfect choice for any home and an environmentally friendly choice.

Handwoven in Transylvania, our grain sacks add a bit of history and authentic vintage charm to whatever it touches! These wonderful sacks make perfect upholstery fabric, bench cushion, outdoor furniture covers, bolster pillow for beds ( simply insert king sized pillow), sofa pillows, floor pillow ( simply fill with feather comforter or body pillow insert ), laundry bag, table runner, bath mat ( hemp is naturally mold and mildew resistant), beach bag, roman shade, hand towels, you name it! They are also perfect for upholstery projects as the fabric is wonderful and very durable!
These textiles are machine washable, tumble dry!

Returns and exchange details
At least part of the allure of vintage/antique items lies in their having a past. With this in mind, we do our best to accurately photograph and describe each item’s condition and will note any imperfections that we can see. It’s impossible for us to be an expert in all items, consequently we may sometimes be wrong or miss something. With this in mind please be sure to enlarge the photos for the best view of an item’s condition.

If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your purchase, you can return it for a full refund less the shipping costs within 14 business days from the day it arrives at your home or business.

Items must be in original condition and be returned in the original packaging. Any extras are yours to keep.

All those wishing to return purchases must message us on Etsy or email us BEFORE you mail it back within 14 days .

You are responsible for the return shipping costs. We urge that all returned orders be sent with some sort of tracking feature; as we will not issue a refund for an order until we've received the returned item in the mail.
We only accept payments through PayPal at this time.

If you do not have a PayPal account, you can still checkout through PayPal with a debit or credit card by using their guest checkout. This help article will walk you through that process:

If you pay by eCheck through PayPal, your order will not ship until the payment has cleared. PayPal will notify both of us by email when this has happened.

Please contact us via the etsy conversation system if you need to reserve an item- upon request items will be held for a maximum of 7 days.
We ship all orders by Posta Romana's International Service to the address indicated on your Etsy Invoice. Please double check to make sure that is the correct address. Transit times can be anywhere from 10 business days up to 4 weeks or more depending on the destination country, customs passage, and various other factors like weather, holidays, and postal strikes.

It is your responsibility to know your countries import rules and regulations. This would include knowing whether or not you may need to pay for any applicable custom duty and/or import VAT that may be levied on your purchase once it reaches your country.

Please don't ask me to claim your order as a gift or alter the true value on the customs declaration form, so you don't have to pay customs duties. It is illegal for me to do so and I will not oblige.

If shipping costs are over by more than $2.00 we will gladly send a refund for the difference.
Insurance is not included unless stated.

If your order is taking longer to arrive than what is indicated above based on your location, you should first contact your delivering post or customs office and provide them with your tracking number specified in the shipping manifest. They should be able to help you track it down or give you more information on what might be causing the hold up. If that doesn't pan out, please let me know and I will work with you and the postal service to figure out what may be causing the hold up.
