This pouch I made while cycle touring South America (see more in ‘The story behind the pouch’) and is purposely expensive. This I did to discourage you from buying them, but of course, I also welcome you to just purchase them : )
This pouch is 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.
This pouch is entirely made by hand, no sewing machine was used.
