Rectangular shaped leather pouch with leather tassels is made according to an excavated piece from Schleswig. As well as other pieces from this site the pouch had rests of incised leather strings attached to the bottom of it. Similar adornments could be found also on other sites around medieval Europe (České Budějovice, Szczecin, Lübeck).
Shape of the pouch is easily found in period pictures and goes with the fashionable trend seen from 13th to 15th censtury and is ment to be worn hanged on a belt.
Upper edge of the excavated piece has rows of holes left by reinforcment seam. As we wanted to make more affordable version of the pouch these are not present.
Closing of the pouch is secured by two drawstrings against each other sewn to the edge of the pouch.
The pouch is made from soft chrom tanned calf leather with vegetable tanned beef leather tassels and strings. The inner stitching is sewn on a sewing mashine by a plastic thread. The visible outside stitching is made by thick linen thread.
