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 "Musicerend paar" by Lucas van Leyden 1524 and is a common style in the 15th and 16th 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.
