Tuareg Leather Purse
Carried by Tuareg men, this is more a wallet than a purse. Nicely decorated with leather and yarn fringe, hand-tooling, hand-stitching, and cutouts, it is accented with white stitching in contrast to the red and turquoise. Subtle hand-tooling decorates the dark blue body and two layers of leather fringe enhance the bottom. The upper part slides up on the hanging cord to reveal two leather flaps which conceal two compartments, probably used for money. Condition is quite good.
Size: 11″ x 4.5″ overall when closed (w/o cord and long fringe)
