40 Hessian Coffee Sacks !
I ordered 40 hessian coffee sacks last week and they arrived today ! I have been wanting to buy some of these for a few years now, but when I was searching for them some time back, I couldn't find any in Australia, only the US and it was going to cost me a small fortune for postage. So when I found a company in Melbourne that sell them I was really excited, so I ordered 40 and they arrived today. I want to make them into tote bags to sell and for gifts. I'm sure I will find lots of other uses for them. I have been searching the net for ideas, I even saw them made into curtains. They would also probably make great mats. Any one got any great ideas what people make with them. In the US they call it burlap here in Australia we call it hessian , but I googled and they are the same thing !I love recycling things into something else that's usable, I guess you call it up cycling when you make something new from something old. 40 may seem a lot of coffee sacks, but if you know me, if I think its a good deal I always want to buy lots.I always figure if I'm paying for postage I want to get as much as I can for my money. Doesn't always work out in my best interest sometimes.
Note: I purchased the coffee sacks from a company in Melbourne called "Wrigglers organic waste recyclers" Please email Peter Conversano at email@example.com
