Grainsack #40 - Double French Blue Stripe Vintage
This is a vintage grainsack from Europe. It has 3 blue stripes. It is very old, probably from the 1800's, but I cannot guarantee that. It is very soft and work well for a sewing project. These softer grainsacks are the old ones. This one has a 3 inch tear that was repaired with dark thread. (see photos.) It has several significant spots that may or may not come out. It's very soft. It is a bag so it can be used as is for a pillowcase. Most fit a king size pillow or a body pillow. You can open the seams and then you will have one long piece of fabric that would be 84"x20". You can also try turning it inside out. Usually the stains are much more prominent on the outside. These bags are reversible. Probably made from flax/linen. This soft French blue stripe is very hard to find.
These grainsacks could be used for most sewing projects, pillows, upholstery, tote bags, table runners, placemats, and much more. I believe these to be made from linen.These are very old. Grainsacks are not returnable.
