Anon, Distribution of fool's caps - 1538 Suviving example in the Bayerisches National Museum. 

Large Purse with Many 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 for this purse comes from a surviving example in the Bayerisches National Museum and is a common style in the 16th and 17th centuries. It hangs from a leather cord and is 7 x 7 inches (18 x 18 cms) when open. The main section is large and lined with soft chamois leather. There are also four outer pockets that can be use to carry small thing in.

This example has been made using brazil wood dyed goat skin and has been decorated with silk wraped beads and buttons.
