This is a gorgeous antique Hungarian grain sack that is approximately 80-90 years old. Two blue stripes down the center create a lovely focal point. This is an actual bag that was once used to store grain. The stripes and weave were specific to each farm and acted as a label as to which farm the grain came front.
This grain sack measures approximately 52 inches long by 20 inches wide.
The stripe detailing is on both sides of the bag and there is no seam at the bottom. The sewn sides could be undone to create one long length of fabric. Grain sacks make beautiful table runners, placemats, chair backs, chair seats, pillows, purses and more! For more ideas, click HERE.
This grain sack has a two bright blue stripes down the center on a chunky woven texture in a light, natural beige color. There are no holes or patches but there are two stitched seams in the middle (one on each side). Please see picture depicting a closeup of one of the seams. As with any antique, there are discolorations and markings in areas of the fabric consistent with age.
I have soaked the grain sack in Oxi-Clean, washed and dried it so that it is clean and ready for use. The more you wash it, the softer it will become. Wash with hot water and dry in the dryer.
