Made to Order - Antique European Grainsack Bolster Pillow Cover (#1189)

$110.00

PLEASE NOTE: DESCRIPTION BELOW IS FOR A BOLSTER PILLOW OR BENCH CUSHION WITH THE BLUE STRIPES PICTURED AND MADE IN THE SAME STYLE AS THE LAST TWO PHOTOS OF THE RED STRIPE PILLOW, ALSO AVAILABLE. Approx. size 36" x 18".

This very large bolster pillow or bench seat cushion cover is made from European grain sack. It is one long piece of artfully handwoven fabric. The heavy duty fabric is hand loomed with cotton warp and linen weft in a herringbone weave of tan and beige with a triple stripe in blue down the center and runs along the front and back of the pillow cover, making it a two sided pillow. The 1 1/4" inch wide stripe is woven with cotton. The grainsack is hand stitched at the seams and roll hem at the opening with heavy linen thread. I laundered this sack and used fabric softener in the rinse, plus a dryer sheet in the dryer to give it a softness that will be comfortable to lean against or sit on. There is no bottom or end seam as it is one continuous piece of single width handwoven fabric. The side seams are strong, and I reinforced them at the top for extra stability.The single end closure has 5 sets of ties in coordinating vintage linen with blue stripes on the ends. The ties can be undone to insert and remove a pillow insert, not included. Note the beautiful handwoven texture of the fabric. It is realIy lovely, and the photos just can't capture its true charm. I don't know if this sack had actually been used because it has no holes or stains. Only one available. I have one more identical blue striped grainsack.

This made to order pillow cover does not include a pillow insert. These can be purchased at major bed and home stores in the Cal king size.
