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, dresses, and what was used most, kitchen towels from them. Their popularity is passed down from mother to daughter.
