We talked before about bag companies promoting their product; the chief indications that we’ve found of a bag’s maker have been on paper labels attached to the sack. Plain sacks with advertising printed on them also often display the name and/or logo of the maker. Only three or four companies that we know of actually printed the company name or logo on a sack with a printed design. Percy B. Kent Co. printed their name right on the famous WWII sack, which they called Kent’s cloth of the United Nations, while the blue sack shown below had the name Staley (presumably from the Staley Milling Co. of Kansas) repeated in one selvedge.

Unfortunately, we have been unable to find any information about the following two logos, each shown in detail beside the sack on which they were found:
empire logoempire logo
empire logoempire logo
Each of these two logos is repeated several times along one side of the sack near the selvedge. We’d love to hear from anyone who has information about the Empire or FF logos and the companies they represent.
