During the plantation days flour was purchased in 100 lbs. sacks. Once the sacks were emptied, washed, and bleached, they had a variety of different uses such as: kitchen towels, cleaning and polishing cloths, diapers, and underclothing. They were even sewn together to make sheets and pillowcases in homes that could not afford regular bedding.
Since flour sack towels are super soft, completely lint-free, absorb like a paper towel, and dry faster than normal kitchen towels, they add sparkle to dishes, glassware, and windows. All the nubs, imperfections, and shadings are characteristics of this fine towel. They are pre-washed, pre-shrunk, and resistant to raveling. Downtown General Store brand hand-screens flour sack towels with water based ink to retain softness and absorbency.
