Reasons to love Grainsack

By far one of the most popular items in our shop is the Linen Hemp Grainsack, both the fabric and the grainsack products. Why? Because it is beautiful, incredibly versatile and so easy to style in the home.  Grainsack products (grainsack cushions, bags, upholstery etc) have been very popular for quite some time, anyone who loves a rustic or country look to their home will add a touch of grainsack here and there to give that authentic French country look

Strangely though it’s not so easy to get hold of – the vintage grainsack is available but difficult to source and often very expensive- it is beautiful but can be marked or stained

Our grainsack has none of the imperfections of vintage fabric – which is one of the reasons why our customers love it so much

So here are a few reasons to add some grainsack to  your home

Easy to style…

Our grey stripe grainsack is by far the most popular in our range – it has a beautiful solid grey stripe with a delicious light cream/off white background colour way – all the ingredients of a fabulous cushion! as recently described by a customer they have a “wonderful softness but robust enough to be used outside”

Handmade and unique

Here at Maison Brocante we are rather proud of our grainsack product range – our cushions include a range of sizes and shapes including the gorgeous little oblong grainsack cushion (featured in Homes and Gardens, Living etc, Homes and Antiques) which is a beautiful little scatter cushion perfect for the sofa, bedroom, benches and pews. Another of our very popular products is the grainsack bench cushion  – perfect for a rustic bench or pew, the sofa or outside. We have two standard sizes with any size available in our made to measure service

Timesless style

We don’t think that styling with quality fabric in muted colours will ever date – our grey, red, blue or natural stripe grainsack don’t subscribe to fashion or trends, a pared back style will ensure that when you change your colour scheme you don’t need to change all your soft furnishings

Built to last…

In these days where we are trying to be more eco conscious and an ethical consumer – we are encouraged to buy well and buy less- we love this ethos here at Maison Brocante. Our grainsack can be chucked in the washing machine and come out as good as new – this beautiful image of a customer home sees our red stripe grainsack cushions looking beautiful – even at 2 years old!!


French country style

We all love a bit of rustic country in our home – always good to mix it up with contemporary styles and pieces – a beautifully curated home will have a collection of pieces you love and don’t look like they are mass produced

Fabulous inside and out

Pop a few of the cushions or bench cushions on your outside furniture to add comfort without losing the simplicity and freshness of your outside space
