Our Flour Sack Towels are a time-honored essential with a classic look!

On Monday, my son and I went to watch the movie "Little Women.", It is a famous masterpiece as the " Wakakusa story." in Japan.

I was proud of my son, who wanted to watch the movie, but he seemed bored in the middle of the film.  I enjoyed it very much because it ’s a girl ’s movie.

The costume designer for this movie is Oscar winner Jacqueline Durran. My son agreed with my opinion that the costume was adorable. In particular, I thought that the loungewear was lovely.

During this period, flour sack towels were also used in the late 19th century.

Flour Sack Towels - History
From the 1850s to the 1950s, everything from flour, sugar, chicken, feed, sausage, and even voting ballots were packaged in tightly woven cotton bags known as "Flour Sack". Thrifty housewives would wash and bleach the sacks, then cut and sew underwear, pillowcases, toys, dress and what was used most, kitchen towels from them. Their popularity passed down from mother to daughter.
