    Late 1960s Zig Zag 30" x 57" wicker with woven thread Tapestry or perhaps a Yoga Mat. At an almost 5' size, this was likely originally sold at a head shop or they may have used it for an advertising display for Zig Zag Rolling Papers. Acquired from a lady in Missouri who bought this second hand at a yard sale in 1974 while a college student. Quite the unusual find with provenance dating it as a period piece. As to what category this fits into... hmmmm.

      I remember buying these...
      They came in white, yellow, and different
      flavors... still do. The zig-zag man ( based off a French soldier) has been around for well over a century.
      VERY COOL FIND! and in great condition for it's age. Well done!

      Thanks Ms.CrystalShip for the information! What did you used it for?
    3. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 2 years ago
      The French soldier had his clay pipe shattered by a flying bullet, so he tore off a piece of paper from his ammo bag and rolled his tobacco with it. This "icon" was also one of the most popular tattoo's in the 60's.
      What did I use them for?
      Let's just say... not tobacco :)
