This bag is reversible. It has a sheepskin outer, with a thick woolen liner. It can be turned inside out for a woolen outer which also looks nice. Both ways have nice hidden seams. All leather is hand saddle-stitched. The wool parts were machine stitched, but hand stitched to the leather. The wood is a unique light teak-like wood and the strap is natural rope. bag dimensions (excluding wood) measures roughly 26cm long, 28cm wide, 12cm thick

These bags are based on the historical hedeby/haithabu bag finds from the viking period.The wooden frames atop each bag act as the closure system. The rope strap is fed through the frames, which open along the rope. When the bag is released, the weight of it pulls both frames together and closes the bag. Because the closure works with the weight of the bag and tension of the rope, it is incredibly difficult for anyone to get their hand in the bag without lifting it up to release the tension. Therefor, it is reasonably pick pocket proof :)
