These purses are made from vegetable tanned goat and calf skins that have been dyed using period dyes and are made entirely by hand. They are based on a small purse found in Sommelsdijk dated to around 1500. They have a soft goat skin front with a stiffer calf skin back and are held closed by a leather drawstring. The more elaborate version has a decorative bound edge and an internal divider inside.

They are 3 1/3 inches wide and 5 inches long (9 x 13cm).

Surviving purse found in Sommelsdijk dated to around 1500. From 'Purses in Pieces' by Olaf Goubitz.
