Description (story of the item):
I love vadmal, fulled wool fabric, which is water-resistant and windproof material. I don`t know if my love is due to the place where I am living. About 300 m from my home there are rapids, where the fulling-mill of Turku castle was during 16th century. On this Viking age bag there is vadmal cover and natural tanned reindeer skin inside. The small flags on the sides of the bag are also natural dyed vadmal.
The outside of the bag is vadmal, fulled wool fabric, handles are reindeer bones sewn with silk thread to vadmal
