Antique European Grain Sack Linen Pillow - perfect addition to your home décor
This pillow is made from rustic, antique Hungarian grain sack linen with deep red stripes. This linen is one of the most beautiful ones I have seen. The red stripes are perfectly complemented by the cross stitched bird, embroidered from an old French pattern. This pillow would be equally at home with a minimalist, modern, country or farmhouse décor. It feels sooo good to the touch – it just cannot be replicated with modern fabrics. It has a firm weave that is just lovely to the touch.
The linen was handwoven around 1900 and stored in a farmer’s barn for the purpose of sewing grain sacks. It was never been used and is of exceptional quality.
The pillow measures 12” x 18”.
FOR A PERFECT FIT, we highly recommend choosing the “Cover with Insert” option to order the luxury 100% cotton down-proof ticking pillow insert along with the pillow cover. Our pillow covers are sewn to fit these excellent hypoallergenic feather/down inserts.
- Pillow cover is made from antique European grain sack linen.
- Back of cover is made with vintage mangle cloth, a pure linen fabric from Germany.
- Hidden zipper closure allows removal of the insert to care for the cover.
- All fabrics are washed before sewing. For laundering my fabrics, I use Costco soap and Dr. Brunner soap. For the heavier grain sack fabrics, I also use Costco dryer sheets.
- This antique grain sack fabric is of the best quality and in great condition with no marks that I could see on this pillow. In general, signs of wear and some discoloration or spots are part of the charm and character of these antique fabrics. Please see the photos for reference.
