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 common 14th and 15th century designs, the flap is secured with a brass buckle and leather strap.  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.

And what better to hang your new pouch on than one of our simple or decorated rosette or bar mount medieval belts? Even better, get our  belt *and* pouch package and save $15!
