Spanish term or phrase:rubio pañil
A line from the "Pastoral de Málaga" by the Cordoban poet Pablo García Baena, quoted in a cookbook:
"¿Qué llevan los campesinos en ese RUBIO PAÑIL?" Can I safely assume it to be a dialectical term for a sack, and does "rubio" here refer to something other than color?
Explanation: Canvas is always rubio unless painted and so this response seems more commensurate with the text. I think a gunny sack works but a gunny sack is not necessarily rubio whereas canvas is by definition a blond/beige color, unless painted. Suerte.
