The dye has softened the texture of the linen which is wonderfully floppy and nubby! The printed stripes are a beautiful natural caramel or almost bronze tone. Because the stripes are printed they do not appear on the interior of the sack like a woven stripe would.
The stripe also ends before it reaches the bottom of the bag. Such a fabulous unique grain sack!
100% machine washable over and over and over, however, the dye may fade gently with time. These textiles were made to stand the test of time and are ideal for upholstery projects, bolsters, pillow covers, bath mats, table runners, dog beds, curtains, lampshades etc! The smallest dimension is about 17.5 inches wide by 50 inches long and the largest dimension is about 19.5 inches wide by 58 inches long.
These sacks are double sided, so if using for cutting there would be 2 panels that measure this range! This grain sack is in as found, unwashed condition. There are a few pale storage marks that may or may not wash fully and storage dust that should wash right out!There is some light uneven fading and the occasional miss-print of the printed stripe (a gap in the stripe where the fabric was probably accidentally folded over when it was printed). The stripes end at different distances from the bottom of the sack on each bag. Please view photos closely, condition reflected in the price.
