Nettle Drawstring Pouch

£14.00

These cute round base utility pouches have been crafted from handwoven nettle and cotton.  They are ideal for carrying travel goodies or storing your favorite bits and bobs.

Description

The main fabric is a handspun & hand loomed Himalayan Wild Nettle. The pouch has a cotton fabric lining that is also used for the base and the closure. Each pouch features an internal pocket and draw cords crocheted from linen and finished off with soap nut beads.

In the Japanese Edo period (1603-1868), people carried this style of pouch (kinchaku) on the waist belt of their Kimono. We continue this simple design with earthy fabrics, making them great for a multitude of uses for both guys and girls.
