Grain sack stripe pillows are are all the rage right now with farmhouse decor lovers! So today I thought I would share my source for the best grain sack stripe pillows! I stumbled upon these pillows on Etsy one day and I couldn't believe the craftsmanship! They are from a small shop by the name of Medreana. These pillows are made made from recycled textiles. Each one is hand woven from ONE HUNDRED YEAR OLD European grain sacks! Isn't that the coolest!?! They were once used on farms to bring grain to the mill. They are made of hemp, and have a distinctive pattern of stripes so that people could tell which farm it belonged to. This allowed farmers to identify their grain sacks when transporting grain to and from the market.
These pillows cost a little bit more than what I would typically spend on pillows, but in my opinion they are worth the price. They are made from extremely durable material, which gives them a long life expectancy. They are also perfect for people with children like me, as well as pet lovers, because they are designed to endure constant use. And they can easily be washed in the washing machine, without the fear of them shrinking or losing shape.
I received a pillow with light grey stripes from their newest collection! It can be purchased here. It is a 36" x 17" pillow. I was hoping for something a little bit bigger but these were the maximum dimensions possible for this pillow because of the limited size of this particular antique fabric I wanted. However, several other varieties are offered in larger sizes. The pillow was shipped all the way from TRANSYLVANIA to the United States in about two weeks! Like are you kidding me!?! I thought that was just a fantasy placed where Dracula hid from civilization in the movies hahaha! But it's not friends. It's where this beautiful linen fabric is hiding!
I love this pillow so much...and I have a lot of pillows, friends. I'm kind of a pillow hoarder! But these grain sack pillows are so unique! They give your farmhouse such a personal look. Mine has moved all over my house, and is currently on my settee in my dining room. I CAN NOT wait to get more! I've got my eye on some body pillows. I think some red ones would make for the most AHHHH-MAZING farmhouse Christmas! If you agree, I have linked Medreana's etsy shop here. She is offering all of my followers a savings of 15% with the code 15PERCENT! Happy shopping!
