Decor 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

all photos mine

A feedbag shrug? I’m thinkin’ um. No.

Peace to you right where you are.
