Flour Sack Dish Towels

During the “Horse and Buggy” days homemakers purchased their flour in 100 lb bundles or sacks made from 100% fine woven cotton. These heavy-weight sacks were made to be extremely durable in lots of conditions over a long period of time. Once emptied, the flour sacks were washed and sometimes bleached, cut, sewn and hemmed, and then stitched into various household items. The cotton was still useful and soft, so this was a perfect way for folks to save money on living essentials. These items included kitchen towels and rags for cleaning the home or taking care of livestock. They were also fine enough to use as polishing cloths for metal, glass, tools and even jewelry. The cotton was comfortable enough to construct bed sheets, pillow cases, and even underwear!

Today, cotton is still trusted to be one of the most versatile and natural materials we can use. Cotton Creations takes the added work out of using flour sack towels – no need to wash and scrub away flour and dirt before cutting and sewing into your desired shape. Those days are long gone, and flour sack towels have stood the test of time throughout the generations. We pre-wash, dry and iron all of our 100% cotton flour sack towels so they are freshly cleaned and pressed for your business or home. Flour sacks and cotton linens are the ideal medium to provide style, comfort and functionality around any space. Bright white towels are perfect in a restaurant, and customized flour sacks are the best housewarming gift.
