Sausage Bag

This bag is based on a style of soft shoulder bags 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 goat skins and are made entirely by hand. The main seam has a piping strip inserted into it which helps keep the rain out. They measure 25 x 10 inches (64 x 25 cms) when open.
