What is Tobacco Cloth? Tobacco cloth is a light, airy, loosely woven cotton fabric similar to gauze or cheesecloth. It can come in various "weights" and can therefore be used for many different purposes. Historically, it was primarily used to cover tobacco plants and protect them from frost and insects. Additionally, early Americans used it in the home for practical purposes including bandages, tea bags & window decor. Recently, many brides have opted to use tobacco cloth instead of netting or tulle for their rustic wedding decor due to its soft draping ability.
