I kept this barkcloth for nearly ten years, thinking I would eventually keep my "promise" and make some man bags. For whatever reason, during covid, I took the plunge. This 1950's barkcloth is extraordinary. This is a DOT bag, it is the medium sized, everyday bag that seems to work for most women. This is the bag I make the most of, by far. It is 7 inches tall, 10 inches across and 5 inches width. It has a high quality magnetic strap and a metal frame that overlaps like an old fashioned Doctor's bag. It is secure and very durable.
