Back in the day, it was usual, but bad practice, to see students carrying dirty clothes to the laundry in a pillow case. On road trips, I’d protect my favorite pillow with a muslin laundry bag and nap happily in the passenger seat.
Later on I scored a collection of brand-new feather pillows for almost no money and decided they’d be good on the floor and in the garden. I cast around for some way to cover them, and a trip to Calcutta Corners yielded classic heavy cotton checks in the right palette. I decided to revive laundry-bag-as-pillowcase, and twenty years later they’re still going strong. Most of the time, they’re pillow cases, but the spares are ready for anything.
