Large Square Draw String Purse
 
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 'The Annunciation' by Robert Campin 1428 and is a common style in the 14th and 15th centuries. It hangs from a leather cord and the top is held closed by two draw strings. It measures 9 x 9 inches (23 x 23 cms) when open.
