Most of the pouches found in Schleswig are wider than higher and this piece follows this trend. Upper edge of the pouch has traces of sewing serving as decoration or reinforcement. Here are the holes filled with linen thread spiraling around in decorative and functional way.
The sides of the pouch have secondary rows of stitching forming a flat surface making the folds of the pouch more precise and easier to form. The pouch closes by two drawstrings sewn to the upper edge of the pouch.
The product is hand made from vegetable tanned goat leather and hand sewn with linen threads 1:1 to original size.
