Our Kidney Pouch in Black and Golden Brown

About our Kidney Pouch 

 If “the clothes make the man” (or woman!), then the accessories make the clothes. Or at least, they help turn them into a proper outfit. In a world without pockets, the pouch was the pockets, purse and “fanny-pack” of the Middle Ages. Medieval pouches had a very specific look and were worn on the belt, itself quite distinctive, often with a dagger or small eating knife. Based on a common14th and 15th century design, the brass fittings on the pouch are taken directly from originals in the Strong Collection. Sturdily constructed and large enough to carry your essentials, this pouch is the perfect way to practically and discretely carry your wallet and modern necessities, while accessorizing your belt with a piece of kit that's as “close to the original” as we could make it.
