Crow flour sack towels

Crow flour sack towels


Handpainted by Jen Elkins in Maine. No two are exactly alike. Heat set and fully machine washable, they get softer with each use.


Flour sack towels are made from 100% pure cotton that is weaved diagonally to make a soft and absorbent fabric that is quick-drying, highly absorbent, and superior in quality. Unlike cheesecloths, flour sack towels are threaded more tightly together, making them heavyweight and more durable. They are lint free, dry quickly, and wash beautifully. They can be used for a variety of household chores, as well as craft projects such as blanks for embroidery, printing, and vinyl. Their meticulously hemmed edges and hanging loops are delicately made for quality and product durability, helping the towels last for many years. For decades, cotton flour sack fabric was a material much loved by thrifty women and farmer’s wives, who recycled the colorful, absorbent flour sacks into towels, tablecloths, aprons, pillowcases, frocks, slips, bloomers, and infant layettes well into the 1940's.
