Description

If you're looking for that perfect bag for the next day trip this is it. This shoulder bag, similar to a sling, was re-purposed from a fine woolen blanket. Mills such as Pendleton allow folks to purchase rejected blankets so they're not discarded. Rather beautiful pieces like this are made. The base is leather and the extras are nylon, alongside brass grommets. The top closure is cinched. It measures 15" by 9" by 5.5". There are some imperfections in the wool, which are possibly moth-eaten, but I don't know the history of the bag, including the artist. The colors are nice and vivid, with a southwest look.

Afterthought: My wife manages Etsy Store EauClaireVintage, and specializes in blankets. She says with near certainty, but not absolutely, this bag was made from a Pendleton blanket.
