Hop sack washing bagAbout this object
Hop sack washing bag. Hand made of hop-sack with a sacking lining. Rope handles, well worn - used instead of clothes basket. Hopsack is a weave not a style. Cloth made with a hopsack weave is a bit coarser, (and thus less formal), than a plain weave because to weave hopsack two or more warp yarns are woven together as one and two or more weft yarns are also woven together as one.Maker
