In our view some of the most beautiful fabrics ever woven were designed not for sofas or curtains, but for a far more humble use; the grain sack. For centuries rough, single striped linen and hemp sacks were made in France and Belgium, and used for transporting mostly grain, but other dry foodstuffs as well. Walloon is one of two homages to this method of transport, which sadly no longer exists.
Walloon is woven entirely from Belgian linen, correctly thought to be the worlds finest. The stripe is unique to Sofas & Stuff, and we are particularly proud of the softness of its handle.
