Large Belt Bag
These belt bags are made from vegetable tanned calf and goat skins that have been dyed using period dyes and they are made entirely by hand. This design is based on a figure in 'Flemish Proverbs' by Pieter Bruegel painted in 1559 and is a common design in the 15th and 16th centuries. The bag is 10 x 9 inches when open (30 x 18 cms) and is 13 inches (33 cms) long overall.
