LEATHER BAG 31

PLEASE NOTE: These bags are meant to hang horizontally, either with the necks left folded down or pinned out straight. Where two dimensions are given, the second refers to the width with the neck extended.
The Tuareg are fiercely independent nomadic people. On the move with their herds and camels over vast areas of the southern Sahara, they create an impressive world of traditional, functional objects from leather which is their primary material due to its durability, lightness and flexibility. Masters of geometric abstract design, the Tuareg fashion objects ranging from saddlebags to cushions to tent mats that are painted and molded, embroidered, engraved and fringed.
