A wool bag, squarish in shape; identical front and back. Made from one piece of blue/black tabby woven wool fabric with coloured stripes (woven as bands) and additional patterning. Two vertical lines of stylized flower heads, worked in discontinuous supplementary weft (?), white, pink, yellow, green, blue, brown and purple, are framed by groups of thin, multicoloured stripes. The top of the bag is trimmed with black commercial synthetic fabric. Green and white tufts of wool are stitched to the bottom corners and pink and white tufts to the centre bottom. The handle, stitched to the inner top corners, is made from one looped piece of yellow, red, green and blue braided wool, and a longer, identical piece is knotted to it.
