American-Processed Flour Sacks for Any Occasion
The 13” x 13” American-processed flour sack towels from Cotton Creations are pre-washed, dried and ironed so you are ready to go right when they arrive. If you need something a little more sturdy and presentable than paper towels, the American flour sack napkin is a bright white and sturdy napkin.
Perfectly suited for:
- place settings
- reusable fabric napkins
- party favors
- business marketing
- tea themed showers
- hand-embroidered handkerchiefs
- and so much more!
The bright white color looks stylish and bold when placed alongside darker place settings and table textiles. If you use these towels for printing, appliqué, stamping or other crafts, the color can create a strong contrast with darker colors, enhancing your design.
The 13 x 13 American-processed flour sack napkin from Cotton Creations is made from quality, 100-percent fine-woven cotton. This makes them much more absorbent than paper towels. They’re made to be durable, so they can withstand repeated washing, high temperatures and scrubbing.
Also, they are lint-free, which means they won’t leave fibers behind when you clean with them, and they will leave no lint if you use them in the kitchen to cover baked goods or ingredients when you cook. Because the American flour sack napkin is not made with harsh dyes, they are safe to use with food, whether you’re making cheese, proofing bread or draining pasta.
Cotton Creations makes purchasing flour sack towels simple, and helps you save both time and money. You can buy American flour sack napkins in multiples so that you always have them handy in your guest room, pantry, bathroom, or even in your car. Because they are pre-washed and pre-shrunk, you don’t have to worry about washing them first. Even in hot water, the fabric won’t shrink and the ink will last. And because they’re finely woven, these towels air dry quickly after washes.

Old-Fashion Flour Sack Towels – A Global Tradition
We couldn’t be happier you found us! Flour sack towels have been used in a global long-time tradition starting in the 1800s when tightly woven cotton sacks used for storing flour, sugar, cornmeal and other foods were repurposed and utilized around the home. One of the most popular uses being kitchen tea towels. Sacks were so plentiful, they were being cut into manageable sizes and supplied by the truckload. During the U.S. Great Depression, these cotton sacks were reused into anything they needed – clothing, undergarments, diapers, cleaning towels, bath towels, quilts, curtains, pillowcases, toy dolls and much more! Manufacturers even started printing colors and designs on their sack food packages to appeal to housewives and encourage their reuse into beautiful decorative fabrics.
Food packaging has changed throughout the centuries and so has the supply of old-fashioned flour sack towels. We are proud to produce and supply our cotton towels in a variety of size and density options just like in the ole days! Today, our customers enjoy the rustic simplistic look, high absorbency and lint free cleaning of the flour sack towels we offer. Because of their versatility, flour sack towels can be used for anything your creative heart desires!
How Are They Made?
First our cotton is sourced out of India, where it is spun and woven into fabric in a fair-trade facility. This fabric is cut into specific sizes, hemmed and bleached. Piece Processed is a process where you bleach the fabric after you have already cut and hemmed it. As a result, the towels do not come out as uniform sizes but rather within a close range of the approximate size we specify on our product pages. Our towels are simplistic & rustic in nature and therefore sizes are approximately within 1 to 2 inches of the stated size.
Our facility near Chicago, IL receives this fabric in bails, where they are then sorted, separated, and undergo the final processing. Here we have industrial washing and ironing that takes place. The fabric is opened up, flattened and graded. We put our flour sack towels through a rigorous quality control process to limit color or weave flaws to less than 5%. Random colored threads woven into the fabric may happen and should be seen as a unique characteristic of rustic flour sack towels. Once they are quality and size inspected, they are placed in inventory where our warehouse will pick for shipping and packaging!
This is the life cycle of our American and Premium flour sack towels. Our Natural flour sack towels are also piece processed but without the additional bleaching. These towels will remain their natural beige color. Our Value flour sack towels are Fabric Processed. Fabric processed is the process where you bleach the fabric before it is cut and hemmed (similar to how bed sheets are done). Because of this our light-weight Value towels can be more uniform in size.
