Sandbag or ottoman?
Burlap: A dense woven fabric that was used to make sacks and bags to transport goods like coffee beans and potatoes. Burlap was durable, breathable and even resisted condensation to protect against spoilage. It was traditionally manufactured as a coarse fabric for use with packaging produce, to cover cement prior to drying and even used as sandbags in case of flood emergency.
Today, burlap is manufactured more refined, is ecofriendly and used to produce rugs, draperies and even ottomans. The burlap on these ottomans has been recycled from vintage sacks and bags and is now ready for use in the home. Complete with original markings, these burlap ottomans will add vintage style and comfort to your space. Use these ottomans to relax and put your feet up or use them as a side or coffee table.
So next time you buy that that bag of potatoes, think vintage burlap ottomans!
