Tamara Fogle is making handbags using antique german flour sacks from 1830 to 1930. They have the original marks and stains and holes in them. Some are repaired and you can see the stitching. They look so soft and comfortable and broken-in already. The black writing,which is different on every sack, has the farmers' name, and in some cases, the date the sack was made.
