Yesterday I mentioned I also had a burlap bag that carried coffee into the country from Costa Rica (I think). Look at the difference in dye take-up and coarseness in the weaving! The circle in the center is where it was bound around a penny – the tighter fabric did not absorb dye as well as the loose fabric, and the bound part (the corona) did not take up dye at all.
