Farmhouse Linens and Décor
The classic farmhouse aesthetic for home, restaurant or business décor all starts with the right textures and colors. A lot of popular country and rustic style décor comes in light and Earthy tones, like beige and brown, to mimic the natural way of life in the country. For texture, you want to play with the same ideas of naturally derived surfaces, like wood and cotton. Especially when creating a space that will entertain guests or provide a sensory service, you want the environment to feel relaxed and peaceful. When you add the Premium Natural unbleached flour sack to your space, you get the best of both worlds!
Our 100% cotton flour sack towels have been used for generations to provide comfort, convenience and cleanliness to homes and shops alike. The cotton is a naturally derived material sourced from our ethical partners and processed here in the US. We do not add harsh bleach or other chemicals, making sure our environmental impact stays as low as possible. The cotton provides a long-lasting, low-lint softness and durable weave that allows it to be super versatile and handy for your staff or for your family.

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 100% cotton towels in a variety of size and density options just like in the ole days! Today, our customers enjoy the homey 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.
