Jpeg 49K A detail of a bag in the collection of Bill Hornaday. He describes the main body of the bag as densely woven silk. The braided strap is cotton. He believes that most of the dyes are vegetable, except for some very faded methl violet. He is pretty confident that the reds are lac or madder but that the pink accents are faded chemically died silk.

This was the bag 'a puzzling bag' posted by Bill Hornaday on the www.tribatlextiles.info/community forum which caught forum members' interest and led to the posting of the photos of other similar bags which form the basis of this small photogallery. Contact Bill Hornaday.
See discussion on the origin of this and other similar bags at the bottom of the photogallery page.
