About our Linen Tasseled Pouch 

 

In a world without pockets, a pouch or purse was a critical fashion accessory. Hung from a belt or girdle the pouch was - and is - a simple way to carry one's personal effects appropriate for both men and women. Our pouches are based on a 14th and 15th century designs found in artwork such as the Luttrell Psalter (c.1340) and the extant 14th century pouch found Baynards castle, London. Our pouches are made in 100% linen colors to coordinate with our other medieval styles.
