pleita bags

17 mayo, 2015 By Matías 0


I found an old esparto bag at a flea market. It was made with a nine-string plait of raw esparto. It has a nice and simple square form. The outside of the bag is covered with a fine dried skin. The skin of a goat I suppose. So perhaps it was made by a shepherd using materials he had close by. A nice piece of rural effort and rural design you find sometimes around here. The pleita bags are inspired by this shepherd bag, they are made with lots of grass but without the goat skin. They are 200mm long by 200 mm wide and 80 mm deep or 240 mm long and wide and 80 mm deep. They have an adjustable leather band.
