hand woven on jack loom , with orlec warp left over from place mats . Being on the short side the bags from shops are always to long and drag on the ground. Modified from a pattern seen in Hand Woven Magazine also can be found on line in bag of the month. weft is one inch strips of red plastic bags and white plastic bags. t
The straps are synthetic yarn. Completely washable no shrinking no staining.
