Antique Grain Sack Clutch with a Leather Wrist Strap 204
Ready to head out to the rooftop patio at Restaurant Nama in Deia with this baby! The fabric used to make this clutch originated from grain sacks that were produced over 100 years ago on European farms. Each grain sack was handwoven from hemp and decorated with a distinctive pattern of stripes and a few with hand-stitched monograms, in order to show to which farm it belonged. These unique family markings were used so that the farmers were able to identify their sacks filled with grain at the markets. This also made it easier to return the empty sacks back to the rightful owner after the market.
