    Production of bread-bags 1915

    Recommended Posts


    Nice photo. Such a small room. I think much of this type of work was farmed out to the "cottage industry". You see quite a few stamps and labels that indicate this. The big manufacturers would make the bulk materials and maybe do some cutting and then the finish work would be subcontracted. For instance, I have a sandbag made from papercloth and it has a bundle label on it. These labels were printed by the government (in this case the "Kgl.Ingenieur-Komitee Berlin") and then filled out by the shop or individual who completed it. The label says, "Angefertigt von der Hausarbeiterin:......." and "Heimarbeit=Ausgabestelle........".
