During the Medieval Era belt pouches were a part of everyday life. With pockets scarce, pouches were used to carry personal items, coinage, and small items such as eating utensils. A pouch like this of superior quality would have been carried by a member of the upper class. It is made from genuine leather that has been hand sewn. You can see each piece was stitched with care. The closure is a belt made of leather that is adjustable. The top is a three point diamond adhered with three antiqued studs. The buckle is 100% pure brass. Two sturdy belt loops measure approximately two inches wide adorn the back. This piece is perfect for a period costume or everyday use.
