A Canadian flour bag and embroidery of proud Belgian women

This is my first article about a decorated flour bag in WWI, written in June 2018.

The Flour Bag has been part of the collection of the Textile Research Center (TRC) in Leiden, The Netherlands, since 2017 and was a gift from Pepin van Rooijen of Pepin Press, Amsterdam.

Gillian Vogelsang-Eastwood, director of TRC, wrote on the occasion of the donation about the ‘Belgian Embroidered Flour Bags’.
