Lovely Finds: Vintage and French Grainsacks

Revisiting vintage linen-hemp grain sacks

from France today for their beauty and also

to offer a few from the 1930s up for sale.

   

Dated, faded, large, and highly IMPERFECT
(read: areas of discoloration, little holes,
and (what I happen to ADORE)
assorted hand-stitched mends, some of which
are sewn with a rust colored thread.

 


 

a simple addition since i get easily bored
