Description

Bag made from multiple sections of animal hide stitched together. Two sets of two short, hide straps are attached on one side. Multiple repairs and patches are evident. A cylindrical, bone toggle is attached to a hide strip along one side. The upper edge is uneven and roughly shaped due to the variety of hide sections used.
