Paris Chic and French Country
Burlap, Ticking, Grain Sack Pillows and Slips

Back in the day (and probably still on many farms today) burlap and grain sack fabric was used as a functional material to carry grains and other foods and supplies. Artists today are discovering beautiful ways to incorporate these  once considered “rustic” materials into exquisite home decor.

Elegance and Whimsy and my Etsy shop are now carrying a beautiful new line of chic pillows and slips. These beauties are created and hand-made right here in the U.S. They are adorned with wonderful images and text, making them a "must have" in your Paris Apartment, French castle, sweet cottage, lovely beach home or humble bungalow!

I hope you enjoy them.
