These pouches are made with natural findings. Although I made them to last and they can handle quite a bit, they are not meant to slide in and out your bag on an everyday use. They are more meant to lay at a certain place and cast your eyes on every time you pass by and, naturally, when you use them. They would do well to hold items you treasure. While my motto is ‘what I see must be beautiful to the eyes but practical as well’, these pouches are more leaning towards the first structure of the sentence.
