Last weekend I went to the Vintage Textile Fair and bought these 1930s feedsack fabrics.
These cotton fabrics were used to package feed in for sale.
Cotton had become cheaper with the introduction of synthetic fabrics and feed
companies were competing for sales.
The women at this time were using these cottons for quilts, clothing and all sorts of
other household items, so the companies became competitive trying to produce lovely
designs that the women might want so they would buy their particular brand of feed.
I am not sure what I might make with these but will enjoy having them.
