Abstract:  Collectively known as “feedsacks”, cotton bags used to package a variety of products such as grain and flour played a vital role as an essential fabric source for both rural and city families from the 1920s through 1960.  This presentation includes an illustrated revue of the history of the cotton textile bag using examples from the West Virginia Cotton Commodity Bag Collection at the WV Gabor Folklife Center at Fairmont State University, a collection of over 1000 artifacts of various textile bags from the original unopened chain-stitched bag to a variety of  handmade clothing and household items.
