So much to love about red and white linens. They feel typically French and many of the grain sack pillows, hand towels and table runners we are seeing are made with these incredibly durable linen and hemp materials from France, Belgium and Germany. I especially love the linens that have initials embroidered onto the piece. Some of these linens are up to a 100 years old so it makes you wonder about the original family that took the time to stitch their grain sacks.
I am starting a collection of antique linens that I think could be a bit dangerous as once you buy a few pieces you can not resist looking for more. I have added the cushions below to my shop and have also added a wonderful table runner in red and an oatmeal colour. Also have a gorgeous vintage chair upholstered in a red and white hemp grain sack. Just beautiful!
Cushions available in my shop made from Antique French Grain sack.
Love this bag made from linen..
Pretty embroidered frabric on this settee.
Vintage chair covered in red and white grain sack. This one is in the shop!
This is such a great idea from Dreamy Whites! What a nice way to bring a gift of a bottle of wine to your hostess.
This is the table runner and Grain Sack cushion available in the shop! Love how it looks against the white settee!
