Artistic displays of the sacks used for storing and transporting coffee beans can be presented in both residential and commercial environments. For retailers, such as cafes and restaurants, burlap coffee bag art can be particularly engaging to patrons as a form of pop art.

Display as wall art. Tack burlap bags with bold attractive printing directly on a wall. Singular bags can be used or a variety of bags can be organised on the wall in creative ways. This is particularly a good option for very large burlap bags.
Frame a coffee bag. Take one or a few coffee bags to a local framing company. Select matting and framing that will compliment the colours and designs of the coffee bag. Display the framed burlap coffee bag prominently in a residential kitchen area as a striking centre piece.
Create a window display art concept. Fill empty coffee bags with newspaper to make the bag appear to be filled with coffee beans. Place coffee beans as the top layer of the display. Imported cargo boxes can also be combined with this type of display art for large window designs.
Cut and sew the burlap. The coffee burlap bag can be cut into strips and sewn into various patterns similar to quilting.
