This bag is made from a reclaimed carpet rug. The piece was cut out, folded over and roughly sewn with a kilim strip to close it. Both warp and weft are wool. The strap is woven yarn, also roughly done.

I do not recommend that this bag be used as a purse. It probably would not hold up well with regular use. Instead, use it to hold precious objects and hang it as a decorative piece. Suggestions: recorders, art supplies, a diary, a photo album... you will know what to do with it!

Estimated age: 40 years +
