Feed companies began selling their products in more closely woven and colorful fabrics, instead of the usual burlap.  Women accompanied their husband when shopping for feed to make sure favorite patterns were purchased.  The fabric was sewn into wearing apparel as well as used for home decoration.

  1. My grandmother made from feed sacks what she referred to as "house dresses". She made a yellow print blouse for me that I liked and wore to school - she would only wear pink. I still have some of the feed sacks she collected.
