made from durable, lightweight cotton - worn to perfection over 50 years of existence. to best preserve graphics, wash cold

history:

feedsacks were known for their durability - often carrying up to 100 pounds of grain, flour, salt or animal feed. they were commonly repurposed in the household as clothing, towels or however they could be put to use. it is my goal to preserve and display their stains, holes and frays as badges of their past experiences. i hope they will continue to gather many memories in their new homes.
