This front of this pouch is made of pillow ticking and the flap, back panel, and welt are made of a lightweight pigskin. The inside of the pouch and flap is lined with homespun and linen. Hanging on the inside is a small homespun pocket. The strap was made by Kris Polizzi (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kris-Polizzi-Custom-Weaving/206619746042859. The antique buttons for adjusting the strap and opening the flap are made of bone. The entire bag was treated with a mixture of beeswax and linseed oil, making the fabric a waterproof tin-cloth.
