Gunny sack

A gunny sack is a bag made of burlap.

Gunny sacks are traditionally used for transporting grains, potatoes, and other agricultural products. Today they are also sometimes used as sandbags for erosion control. They are usually made from jute or other natural fibers, although modern sacks are often made from polypropylene. Gunny sacks are also popular in the traditional children's game of sack races.
