Draw String Purse with Two Side Pockets

These purses are made from vegetable tanned goat skins that have been dyed using period dyes. They are lined with chamois and are made entirely by hand. The design is based on a figure in 'The Wedding Dance In The Open Air' by Pieter Bruegel painted in 1556. It hangs from a leather cord and is 8 x 6 inches (20 x 15 cms) when open. The main section is wide enough to get your hand inside and the two outer pockets are held closed with their own drawstrings.
