Round 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 a number of paintings and illustrations and is a common style from the 14th to the 17th centuries. It hangs from a leather cord and is held closed by a pair of draw strings. It measures 8 x 7 inches (20 x 20 cms) when open.
