Narrow Belt Purse
These purses are made from vegetable tanned calf skins that have been dyed using period dyes and they are made entirely by hand. The design for this purse comes from "Peasants Before an Inn" by Jan Steen 1653 and is a typical 17th century style. It is a draw string fronted bag with a stiffer back which helps keep it's shape. It hangs from a belt loop and is kept closed with a button flap. The main pocket is 7 x 7 inches (18x18 cms) when open and it is 12 inches long including the belt loop.
