These trendy pillows are anything but sad sacks. Like Danny Seo's recycled feed bag pillow, these chic throws are crafted from old rice bags and grain sacks, or at least made to look like they are.
Some are super colorful, like the Urban Outfitters Recycled Rice Sack Pillow ($20). The pop-art designs would look great in eclectic rooms or as a dash of color in an otherwise minimalist space. If simple and chic is more your bag, then the elegant neutral tones of French grain sacks should suit your fancy. Check out my roundup below.
