Description: Large 'bag' shaped article with opening along upper edge. The bag is composed of natural coloured loosely woven linen with each side of the bag, lined in matching linen. The embroidered design on both sides forms a border around the edges of the bag with a repeating geometric motif. Four small motifs are embroidered onto the main body of each side of the bag. A small flap folds over one side to act as a closure, with the matching border design worked along it, with two button hole stitched loops on the underside for fastening the bag, although the attachments are missing. A looped thread design trims the edges of the bag.
