I was delighted to find five of these old bolster shaped French laundry bags. When I found them I was told they had come from a French monastery and I believe this is right. Made from off white cotton they have a charming simplicity about them. As well as being used for laundry they would be lovely for storing any delicate items you may wish to protect or groups of items you want to keep in one place. The bag ties are made from pale grey antique French grosgrain ribbon. The bags are in very good condition with just faint signs of use. They measure L69cm x W37cm.
