White Flour Sack Towels

Our most favourite kitchen - utility towel that we use daily in our home.

A brief history of flour sack towel. From the1800’s to around 1950, food staples such as flour, sugar, cornmeal, and chicken feed were packaged in tightly woven 50 or 100 pound cotton sacks. During the American Great Depression, between 1929 and the late 1930’s, early 1940’s, everything was hard to come by. Frugal housewives would re-use these cotton sacks and make them into clothing, toys, quilts, curtains, pillowcases, undergarment, and of course, dish towels.The re-use of flour sack towels became wide spread. 

In the mid to late 1950’s, flour companies began using a cheaper method of packaging, paper sacks, and with the growth of new prosperity in America, the re-use of flour sack towels went by the wayside. 

Flour sack towels are making a comeback today. As a kitchen towel, flour sack towels are far superior to a terry or other cotton dish towel most commonly seen today.They are lint free, dry quickly, wash beautifully and can be used for a variety of household uses and craft projects. 

I tend to have stacks of white flour sack towels in my kitchen drawer. We use the flour sacks for cooking, drying dishes, cleaning , straining or keeping bread wrapped in the towel to keep it warm from the oven....endless uses....only limited to your imagination!
