Note: Please note, with the difficulty of accurately representing colors on a variety of monitors, the color names are meant as descriptions along with the swatches. Please use both when deciding on what color to order. Also, despite how the colors may appear on your monitor the same color names in Wool, Silk and Linen are different and do not exactly coordinate.

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.
