4 x 7 
		  Buckskin Tobacco Pouch

Fully hand sewn with authentic stitching .  Double buckskin draw strings at top to secure contents.

Large size was used as bulk storage for tobacco or smoking blend.  Indians typically filled the smaller version with a ceremonial blend, and put this bag in their pipe bag with their stem and bowl.  A mountain man may tie the smaller size to their belt, or carry it in their possibles bag for easy access when they wanted a pipe full.

Tobacco bags were often decorated with beading and/or quillwork.  If you intend to do so on yours I recommend the Indian tanned hides.  It's nearly impossible to do good looking work on a pre-made commercial tanned bag.

Note:   These sample buckskin colors may vary slightly depending on your browser.   But then, colors vary slightly anyway between batches of buckskin during the smoking or dyeing processes.
