These were made using a variety of materials. The spouts were turned on a lathe by Kris Polizzi. The bodies of the pouches are made from leather, antique ticking, hemp, and homespun pattern cotton fabric. They are secured to the spouts by hemp cord, linen cord, and wire. Several have designs burned into the leather. Some have rough wooden stoppers, several of which are carved into human or animal effigies. One of the spouts has a rawhide repair.
