Draw String Purse with Side Gusset
These purses are made from vegetable tanned goat skins that have been dyed using period dyes and they are made entirely by hand. The design for this purse comes from an illustration in Boccaccio's Decameron - 1430 and is a common style in the 14th and 15th centurys. It hangs from a leather cord and has a side gusset to give more room. It measures 7 x 7 inches (18 x 18 cms) when open.

This purse can also be made from silk taffata lined with soft chamois.
