Large Sausage Bag

This bag is based on a style of soft shoulder bag that are shown in a number of images from the 14th to the late 17th centuries and is usually depicted being worn by lower class people such as soldiers and beggars.

They are made from vegetable tanned calf skin and are made entirely by hand. They have a circle of leather stitched into the base which gives them a lot of room inside. They measure 28 x 13 inches (71 x 33 cm) when open and the circle at the bottom is 9 inchs (22cm) in diameter .
